A woven and nylon fabric with sealed edges that is non-adherent and also 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. 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. It allows 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.
Requires a secondary dressing to hold in place.
