Durafiber Ag (1)



A highly absorbent, non-woven, silver gelling fibre dressing composed of a blend of cellulose-based fibres. When the dressing fibres come into contact with exudate, they swell and form a soft cohesive gel sheet. Exudate is locked in the dressing structure.


Indicated as an absorbent, antimicrobial gelling dressing for the management of chronic and acute, full thickness, partial thickness, or shallow granulating exuding wounds. Examples of appropriate wound types include: leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic ulcers, surgical wounds, traumatic wounds, donor sites, partial thickness burns, tunnelling and fistuale wounds. Designed to be left in place for up to 7 days. May be used on infected wounds. Where the product is used on infected wounds the infection should be inspected and treated as per local clinical protocol.


Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to silver. Do not use on non-exuding wounds. Remove and Update: To reduce the risk of thermal injury, remove the dressing prior to MRI examination.
