AQUACEL® Dressings

AQUACEL® Dressings launched 20 years ago with a breakthrough technology — Hydrofiber®.

Since then, we’ve never stopped innovating.

Today, the AQUACEL® family includes a wide range of wound dressings — including AQUACEL® Ag Extra, AQUACEL® Ag+ Extra, AQUACEL® Surgical and AQUACEL® Ag Burn.

Our AQUACEL® Ag dressings are the #1 anti-microbial dressings today¹, combining the infection-fighting power of ionic silver with the unique capabilities of Hydrofiber® Technology.
