Literature

FAQs
Is Advazorb Border shower proof?
The backing is waterproof. However due to the hydrophobic nature of silicone if water does come between the skin and the contact layer then adherence will be lost. In an average shower it is showerproof, however in a power shower or for a longer period than normal it may not be.
Is there strike through?
No. The backing is waterproof, low friction and prevents strike through.
Which direction does it wick?
Wicking is vertical and lateral, ensuring maximum use of all the foam in the dressing.
Why would I use Advazorb Border instead of Advazorb Silfix?
Advazorb Silfix is ideal for wounds with fragile skin that require a degree of compression/ secondary fixation. Advazorb Border is ideal for hard to dress wounds where secondary fixation isn't possible/ required.
Why are the holes on Advazorb Border so big?
As Advazorb Border doesn't require secondary fixation, and subsequently there isn't additional pressure to enhance the hydrophilic nature of the foam, the larger holes offer a greater surface area of exposed foam enabling the smooth passage of exudate into the dressing.
