Mepitel® Soft Silicone Wound Contact Layer

Mepitel is a wound-contact layer that can be left in place for up to 14 days depending on the condition of the wound. The long wear time of Mepitel reduces the necessity for frequent primary dressing changes. The porous structure of Mepitel allows exudate to pass into an outer absorbent dressing. The Safetac layer prevents the outer dressing from sticking to the wound and ensures atraumatic dressing changes. The Safetac layer seals around the wound edges and prevents exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin, thus minimizing the risk of maceration.

Benefits of Mepitel:
  • minimizes pain and trauma at dressing changes
  • may remain in place for up to 14 days which in turn ensures undisturbed wound healing
  • open mesh structure allows for application of topical agents and passage of exudate into secondary dressing
  • enables less frequent dressing changes
  • minimizes the risk of maceration
  • maintains product properties over time - leaves no residues and does not dry out
  • transparent for easy wound inspection during application and during wear
  • conforms well to body contours, promoting patient comfort during wear
  • stays in place; conforms well to body contours
  • may be cut
  • low potential for skin irritation and allergy


Areas of use:
Mepitel is designed for a wide range of wounds such as skin tears, skin abrasions, surgical incisions, second degree burns, blisters, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, diabetic ulcers, and venous and arterial ulcers.

Safetac technology
Safetac® is a patented soft silicone adhesive technology. Dressings with Safetac technology are atraumatic upon removal. These dressings minimize trauma to the wound and the surrounding skin, which minimizes pain to the patient. The risk of maceration is minimized by sealing the wound margins.

Mode of action
Mepitel can be removed with minimum pain and without damage to newly formed delicate tissue. The open mesh structure allows exudate to pass into a secondary absorbent dressing pad. Mepitel minimizes maceration thanks to the sealing effect over the surrounding skin. This micro-adherence and the open mesh structure allow exudate to move vertically, not laterally, into the secondary absorbent pad. Mepitel also reduces the necessity for frequent primary dressing changes.

Intended use
Mepitel is designed for the management of wounds such as skin tears, skin abrasions, surgical incisions, second degree burns, blisters, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, diabetic ulcers, and venous and arterial ulcers.
