Convenient adhesive presentation
The wound contact layer of ALLEVYN Adhesive is coated with a low allergy adhesive which is designed to adhere well to intact skin, but not to wounds. The adhesive is non-irritating.
In-vitro studies and clinical experience demonstrate that ALLEVYN Adhesive dressings can stay in place for up to seven days. This capacity results from a combination of properties:
Moist Wound Environment
ALLEVYN Adhesive creates and maintains a moist wound healing environment at the wound surface, helping prevent eschar formation.
Profiled dressing edges
ALLEVYN Adhesive has a profiled cross-section, narrowing to micro-thin edges which helps ensure the dressing remains securely in place and prevents accidental removal by friction between the dressing and clothes and bedding.
Waterproof/Aids in the prevention of bacterial contamination
ALLEVYN Adhesive dressings are soft and cushioning, giving excellent patient comfort and protection.
