Advazorb Border

Hydrophilic foam dressing with soft silicone wound contact layer and border

Advazorb Border

Product Description

Advazorb Border and Advazorb Border Lite are absorbent, atraumatic, self-adhesive bordered dressings with a unique perforated soft silicone wound contact layer.

The silicone wound contact layer has large pores which enable the passage of exudate into the absorbent foam whilst protecting the fragile wound bed. This combination ensures the dressings comfortably stay in place while minimizing the potential for maceration.

Use

Remove clear liners, apply pink side up to the wound ensuring the central foam pad covers the entire wound area with a minimum overlap of 2cm around the edges of the wound.

Top tip
Advazorb Border features a low friction backing which reduces snagging on clothing and bedsheets, prolonging dressing wear time.

FAQ

1. 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.
2. Is there strike through?
No. The backing is waterproof, low friction and prevents strike through.
3. Which direction does it wick?
Wicking is vertical and lateral, ensuring maximum use of all the foam in the dressing.
4. 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.
5. 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.
