• Super absorbent starch copolymer absorbs and binds water molecules from the wound fluid, allowing natural growth factors and nutrients to concentrate in the wound bed
• Semi-permeable thin-film backing provides a liquid barrier while allowing gas (O2 and CO2) exchange and maintaining an ideal moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR)
• Contains a mild, non-toxic wound-cleansing agent (F-68 surfactant) that is activated by moisture and gradually released into the wound bed
• Glycerin, a moisturizer contained in the dressing, keeps the dressing from adhering to the wound bed and provides comfort at the wound site
• Glycerin also reduces odor, conserves living fat cells, reduces hyper-granulation, soothes traumatized tissues and supports autolytic debridement
• Transparent film backing allows visual inspection of the membrane to determine the need for a dressing change
• Keeps wound bed clean throughout healing
