C-Sorb Silicone

C-Sorb Silicone

Superabsorbent dressing comprising fluid-repellent backing that prevents strike-through for patient comfort and safety, and gentle silicone contact layer that allows free flow of fluids to the dressing while maintaining stable fixation and enabling pain-free removal. Fast-wicking layer offers even absorption and superabsorbent polymer (SAP) core locks away bacteria and matrix metalloproteinases.
