AQUACEL® Ag Foam

Everything you love about foam — and more.

The only silver foam dressing that offers the healing benefits of a Hydrofiber™ contact layer, the comfort of foam, and the bacteria-killing power of ionic silver.*1

AQUACEL AG Foam Layers

AQUACEL® Ag Foam dressings give you:

  1. A waterproof top layer that permits evaporation of excess moisture while protecting against viral/bacterial penetration,*2 allowing the patient to shower and bathe
  2. A soft, absorbent foam pad to enhance patient comfort and absorb excess fluid
  3. A Hydrofiber™ layer with ionic silver that gels on contact with wound fluid and helps provide an optimal environment for wound healing
  4. A gentle silicone adhesive that provides secure, skin-friendly adhesion, easy removal and demonstrated low potential for dermal irritation or allergic contact sensitization3

The addition of ionic silver provides the ability to kill a broad spectrum of wound-related microbes in the dressing through:

  • Rapid and effective antimicrobial action*1, 4-5
  • Controlled release of ionic silver as wound exudate is absorbed into the dressing*1, 4-5
  • Sustained antimicrobial activity for up to 14 days*1, 4-5

 

ConvaTec Hydrofiber™ Technology gives AQUACEL® dressings powerful capabilities.
