• Easy to handle

• Reduces risks of leakage and maceration
• High moisture vapor transmission rate for longer wear time
• Spreading layer distributes fluid over a wide surface area to maximize fluid transport to the retention layer and backing film
• Exudate progress monitor lets you track and record fluid, potentially avoiding excess dressing changes
