Transparent Film (Extra Thin) Dressing

  • Transparent and waterproof
  • Allows for faster healing and avoids maceration by retaining natural wound exudates and allowing excess exudates to evaporate
  • It can stay on for up to 7 days depending on level of exudate
  • It provides protection against friction and shearing
  • It provides protection against contamination and bacteria as it is impermeable to water and body fluids allowing area to be washed
  • It is thin and flexible with good viscosity
  • It does not roll up on the skin and is easy to remove, minimising pain
  • Does not leave adhesive on the skin post removal
