Suprasorb® P Silicone

Silicone Foam Dressing

Suprasorb® P silicone is a three-layered wound dressing with a wound-facing soft silicone layer, a polyurethane foam layer and a polyurethane foam carrier layer.

Suprasorb® P silicone maintains a moist wound healing environment and thereby assists the natural healing process. Exudate and factors which inhibit wound healing are absorbed fast and evenly into the dressing. 1) 4) 13)

The open-pored foam structure and the generously dimensioned perforation of the adhesive silicone layer result in the good exudate management of Suprasorb® P silicone. The wound dressing is easy to apply and can be removed causing virtually no pain – Suprasorb® P silicone is particularly gentle on the wound bed and the sensitive skin surrounding the wound. 1)

Suprasorb® P silicone adheres to parts of the body that are difficult to treat.1)

The silicone foam dressing is available with and without an adhesive edge.

Fields of application

  • wounds with low to moderate levels of exudate
  • superficial to deep* wounds
  • in all phases of wound healing, e.g. :
    • venous and arterial ulcers
    • pressure ulcers
    • diabetic ulcers
    • first- and second-degree burns
  • to prevent skin injuries or lacerations

* combine with a suitable wound filler for deep wounds


  • can be applied easily and removed virtually painlessly
  • gentle on the wound bed and sensitive surrounding skin
  • secure retention the whole time the dressing is worn
  • promotes a moist wound healing environment
  • good exudate management

To note

Dressing change interval:

  • To be determined by the attending physician based on the wound condition, level of exudate, and secondary dressing used, but no longer than 7 days.
  • Suprasorb® P silicone can be used as a secondary dressing for wounds at risk of infection within the scope of a regular antimicrobial therapy regimen.
  • When dry, Suprasorb® P silicone can easily be cut to the size of the individual wound. The dressing should overlap the wound edges by approx. 2 cm.
