The wound contact layer side of the dressing has a clear perforated film with a that stops the wound bed from adhering to the dressing; the non-adhesive version also has a pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive. The perforations also allow the uptake of exudate. The dressing contains polyhexamethylene biguanide (PHMB, polyhexanide).

ActivHeal Silicone Foam Border

ActivHeal Silicone Foam Border

A sterile absorbent dressing consisting of a hydrophilic polyurethane foam pad, without and without a border. The outer layer comprises a pink, low-friction, waterproof, polyurethane film.

ActivHeal Tracheostomy Foam

ActivHeal Tracheostomy Foam

A soft, conformable, absorbent two-layer dressing consisting of a polyurethane foam pad and a polyurethane membrane with an acrylic adhesive border. The foam pad absorbs wound exudate vertically into the dressing, where it is retained. The waterproof membrane allows transpiration of the exudate to aid the dressing's fluid handling capacity.
