Biatain Silicone Foam

  • Code: 14792

  • Unit: 

Superior absorption due to unique 3D foam

When in contact with exudate the 3D foam structure of Biatain® Silicone conforms closely to the wound bed for superior absorption - even under compression (3). The unique 3D foam structure absorbs the exudate vertically and together with the lock-away layer it locks away the fluid within its structure, still leaving the wound moist for optimal wound healing conditions. The fluid handling properties of Biatain® Silicone ensure control of exudate thus minimising risk of leakage and maceration.

Gentle and secure fit

The silicone adhesive layer provides a secure fit to keep the dressing in place while ensuring minimal pain upon removal (1,2). The soft and flexible design of Biatain® Silicone ensures a close fit to wound and body, and the foam pad at skin level makes Biatain® Silicone comfortable to wear – even under compression (2). 

Intuitive use

Biatain® Silicone has a 3-piece non-touch opening for an easy and aseptic application.

Fewer dressing changes

Due to superior absorption, you can experience up to 50% reduction in dressing changes (3,4).

Product composition

Biatain® Silicone is a soft and conformable polyurethane foam dressing with a semi-permeable, bacteria- and waterproof top film, a lock-away layer and a soft silicone adhesive layer.

Biatain® Silicone is indicated for a wide range of exuding chronic and acute wounds such as leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, non-infected diabetic foot ulcers, donor sites, postoperative wounds and traumatic wounds (e.g. skin abrasions, skin tears, cuts).
