A woven, nylon fabric with sealed edges that is non-adherent, non-irritating and hypoallergenic. The wound contact material is placed over the wound and under gauze or other absorbent dressing.
Tegaderm™ Contact Layer is a woven nylon fabric with sealed edges that is a lint-free, non-adherent, non-toxic, non-irritating, and hypoallergenic material. Clinical studies show that Tegaderm™ Contact Layer can be left on the wound for up to 7 days. Tegaderm™ Contact Layer can be used under gauze or other absorbent dressings, while allowing exudates to pass through to an absorbent outer barrier. The non-adherence of this material will minimize disruption of healthy granulation tissue and re-epithelialized surfaces.
