Product Description

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

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.
