Mepilex is an absorbent foam pad coated with a soft silicone layer, designed for a wide range of exuding wounds such as leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and traumatic wounds such as skin tears and secondary healing wounds. The soft silicone dressing is also suitable for use under compression bandaging, due to its absorption properties. The dressing consists of a soft silicone wound contact layer (Safetac), a flexible absorbent pad of polyurethane foam and an outer film which is vapor permeable and waterproof. Mepilex absorbs exudate, maintains a moist wound-healing environment and minimises the risk of maceration.
Please Note: As Mepilex maintains a moistwound environment, supporting debridement, initial wound size may increase but this is normal and to be expected.
• Saftetac is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology which assures non-sticking and minimal trauma on removal from wound, even in critical situations where the exudate starts to dry out. Gentle but secure adhesion on the skin, with no epidermal stripping or pain on removal
