AQUACEL® Dressings

AQUACEL® Foam

Everything you love about foam — and more.

Only AQUACEL® Foam dressings offer comfort, simplicity and the healing benefits of a Hydrofiber®  contact layer.

AQUACEL® Foam dressings give you:

  1. A waterproof top layer that permits evaporation of excess moisture while protecting against viral/bacterial penetration,*1 allowing the patient to shower and bathe
  2. A soft, absorbent foam pad to enhance patient comfort and absorb excess fluid
  3. A Hydrofiber® layer that gels on contact with wound fluid and helps provide an optimal environment for wound healing
  4. A gentle silicone adhesive that provides secure, skin-friendly adhesion, easy removal and demonstrated low potential for dermal irritation or allergic contact sensitisation2

The Hydrofiber® interface in AQUACEL® Foam dressing:

  • Reduces pain while dressing is in situ, 3-6
  • In its gelled state, supports non-traumatic dressing removal
  • Does not damage tender, granulating wound tissue during dressing changes
  • Upon removal, results in low cellular adhesion in both wet and dry environments*7

ConvaTec Hydrofiber® Technology gives AQUACEL® dressings powerful capabilities.
