Foams

Our portfolio of foam wound care dressings includes trilaminate foam, bilaminate foam, silicone foam and silicone wound contact layer products that provide high absorption, low wound adherence and protection. We are also able to provide antimicrobial foams.

Providing confidence with security and protection

Our trilaminate foam wound care dressings use polyurethane foam to create the microporous hydrophilic foam structure.

The hydrophilic foam has a flexible, breathable, backing film for both adhesive and non-adhesive foam dressings, which allows vapour to pass out through the dressing whilst the foam absorbs high levels of exudate.

The wound contact layer side of the dressing has a clear perforated film which protects the wound bed from adhering to the dressing by preventing the newly formed granulation tissue adhering to the foam.

The perforations in the wound contact film allow the uptake of exudate, preventing excess fluid causing maceration to healthy skin.

 

Specifically designed to deliver quality and clinical effectiveness

Our bilaminate foam wound care dressings absorb exudate into the microporous foam structure and the breathable polyurethane backing membrane allows the transmission of the exudate as moisture vapour.

Exudate is rapidly absorbed into the hydrophilic foam whilst the microporous surface helps prevent adherence to the wound bed, minimising trauma during dressing changes.

The polyurethane backing membrane provides a high Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR).  Both the adhesive and non-adhesive foam dressings have a high MVTR allowing excess exudate to evaporate through the dressing which, combined with the high intrinsic absorption capacity of the foam, provides a high total fluid handling capability.

This ability to absorb high levels of exudate provides protection against maceration and leakage.

Dressing removal

Pfm-Silicone-AdhesiveOur silicone foam dressings minimise pain and trauma at dressing change protecting the peri wound skin and promoting comfort during the wear time.  The high MVTR polyurethane backing film allows excess exudate to evaporate through the dressing.  This combined with the high intrinsic absorption capacity of the microporous foam, provides a high total fluid handling capability.


Suitable for:

moderate to heavily exuding wounds
patients with vulnerable skin

Low-adherent dressing

Our silicone wound contact layer is a primary dressing recommended for use when adherence to the wound is a potential problem.  Exudate passes through the silicone dressing and onto a chosen secondary dressing.  This secondary dressing can then be changed as required whilst the silicone wound contact layer remains in situ.


Suitable for:
Nil to heavily exuding wounds, including: skin tears, skin abrasions, lacerations, partial thickness burns, diabetic foot ulcers, venous and arterial leg ulcers, post operative wounds and pressure ulcers.
