Rylon-1® is indicated for the management of a wide range of wounds, including superficial or partial-thickness, such as first- and second-degree burns, skin grafts, donor sites, post-operative wounds, skin tears, lacerations, stage 1-4 pressure ulcers, as well as venous, arterial and neuropathic ulcers. Rylon-1® is also suitable as a primary layer to be used in conjunction with other dressing materials.


Rylon-1® is contraindicated for wounds with clinical signs of infection. Inspect wounds daily for infection. If infection occurs, thoroughly cleanse the wound and apply a new dressing. Rylon-1® is contraindicated for patients with known allergies or sensitivities to silicone. Rylon-1® is not intended to be used principally with wounds that have breached the dermis and can only heal by secondary intent. Rylon-1® is contraindicated for primary coverage of third-degree burns. Rylon-1® may be left in place for several days, as long as exudate passes freely into the secondary dressing. Rylon-1® may typically remain on the wound for up to five days, but caution should be exercised that the wound does not become dry, as this may lead to adherence of the dressing to the wound bed.

Mode of Use/Application

Skin Preparation:
Achieve hemostasis, remove eschar, necrotic tissue and foreign debris from the wound and carefully irrigate the site with an appropriate cleansing solution.

Dressing Application:
Select the appropriate Rylon-1® size that will completely cover the wound surface, ensuring a 1"-1(1/2)" (3cm-4cm) margin beyond the edges of the wound. Before removing the protective film, cut Rylon-1® to size if needed. If necessary, several dressings can be slightly overlapped to cover very large wound areas to ensure proper coverage and minimize slippage. Remove the blue paper backing by peeling it away at the slit and apply Rylon-1® with the silicone (sticky) side down in contact with the wound. It may be easier to peel and apply Rylon-1® in one step. Gently smooth in place and remove any wrinkles. Cover with appropriate secondary absorbent dressing, depending on the amount of exudate expected. Secure with tape, bandage or netting as appropriate.

Removal & Change Frequency

Remove retention and/or secondary dressing. Gently pressing down on the skin, carefully free the dressing edges one at a time and remove.
