The reinforced heavy-duty fibre ensures maximum protection, shielding out water, dirt and germs, even when wet. The non-adherent wound pad does not stick to the wound as it is healing, meaning it facilitates easy removal. The adhesive is strong but gentle on skin and helps prevent trauma during dressing changes.

Medical dressings serve several functions. They protect a wound, reducing the risk that infectious agents will enter and colonize the area. They also collect exudate, the material which seeps from the wound, which can be important from a sanitary and aesthetic perspective. Dressings can also be used to keep a wound moist and to promote healing. An adhesive surgical dressing is commonly used as a primary dressing for the management of acute wounds such as long surgical incisions, lacerations, abrasions and invasive lines.
