Reduces odour, pain and exudate. Remains effective for 7 days.

Zorflex LA

Zorflex LA

A highly adsorbent, low-adherent, flexible, dual-sided wound contact layer that provides an effective barrier to microbial contamination. Accelerates the healing process by entrapping and killing microbes on its surface, modulating proteases and restoring the body’s natural trans-epithelial potential across the wound. Reduces odour, pain and exudate. Remains effective for 7 days.
