Vliwasorb® adhesive

The adhesive superabsorbent dressing

Fields of application

  • heavily exuding wounds
  • superficial wounds in the exudation phase, e.g.:

    • ulcers of varied origin
    • second degree burns

  • postoperative wound healing by secondary intention
  • laparotomy wounds
  • fistulas

Properties

  • very high capacity to absorb and retain wound exudate
  • an absorbent core with superabsorbent polymers, which can absorb up to 20 times their weight
  • cost and time savings because of fewer dressing changes
  • protects from maceration of the wound edge
    and promotes wound healing through
    the moist wound
    environment2) 3)
  • attractive to patients:

    • thin
    • flexible
    • cushioning

  • reduces the risk
    of adhering

The tried-and-tested special features of Vliwasorb superabsorbent dressings are combined with the benefit of easy retention. Compared to the non-adhesive option, Vliwasorb adhesive which has an elastic, skin-friendly adhesive membrane, is designed to be used in all situations where dressings need to be applied quickly and easily1). Vliwasorb adhesive adheres securely without additional retention. The elastic membrane backing fits the dimensions of superabsorbent wound dressings. So a large amount of exudate can be absorbed and retained.
