Hydrofiber® Technology

AQUACEL® Dressings

How Hydrofiber® Technology Works

  • Hydrofiber® Technology is a soft, absorbent material that transforms into a gel on contact with wound fluid
  • The gelling action creates an optimal environment for wound healing*1, 6, 10, 11, 13

Locks in Exudate and Traps Bacteria*1-3

Micro-Contours to Wound Bed*8

Respond to wound fluid levels by forming a cohesive gel

  • Helps protect periwound skin and reduce maceration4,5
  • May help to minimize wound and cross-infection during removal6,7
  • Minimizes “dead space” where bacteria can grow8
  • Maintains moisture balance in the wound bed9
  • Forms a cohesive gel when in contact with exudates
  • Provides rapid and sustained antimicrobial activity on demand*10-12 (dressings with ionic silver)
