Wound Contact Layer

Product Description

Siltact is a thin, flexible and non-adherent wound contact layer consisting of a polyester mesh coated in soft silicone that is indicated for use with a secondary absorbent dressing on a wide range of wound types.

Siltact adheres to dry surrounding skin (and not moist wound tissue), sealing the wound to minimise the risk of maceration whilst ensuring that any outer dressing does not stick to the wound site, consequently minimising patient pain and trauma.

The transparent open mesh design has been optimised to facilitate fluid management, allowing for effective exudate removal and topical treatment application as well as wound inspection. Since Siltact will not dry out and remains secured for up to 14 days, it promotes a truly undisturbed healing environment, reducing stress to the wound and any newly formed tissue to provide optimal patient comfort and recovery.

Siltact is available in a variety of sizes and can be cut to shape and size to meet even your most demanding wound care needs.
