Silotull®is a porous, atraumatic wound contact layer, consisting of a flexible polyester mesh coated with soft tack silicone gel. The silicone coating is slightly tacky, which facilitates the application and retention of the dressing to the skin surrounding the wound. This gentle adhesion also tends to prevent maceration by inhibiting the lateral movement of exudate from the wound on to the surrounding skin.
Soft Silicone ensures removal of the dressing without pain or trauma to the delicate new tissues.
Silotull®is not absorbent, but contains apertures or pores that allow the passage of exudate into secondary absorbent dressing.
Transparent for easy wound inspection during application and during wear.
Non-adherent to moist wound bed while adherent to dry healthy skin.
Atraumatic and painless removal: can be removed without pain or damage to the delicate new tissues
Porous: allows exudates to pass to a secondary wound dressing, so minimizes skin maceration.
