Granuflex is a hydrocolloid
dressing consisting of an inner (wound contact) layer of
hydrocolloids. (Hydrolloids have highly absorbant properties
whilst being impermeable to water vapour)
The dressing is within an adhesive polymer fabric matrix and an outer layer of soft polyurethane foam. The adhesive layer contains micro elastic layers which enhance the dressings ability to contain wound fluid by forming a cohesive gel. The dressing also provides a moist wound environment that favours the healing proves by aiding the body's own enzymes and moisture to re-hydrate (autolytic debridement).
- Helps to facilitate non-traumatic removal of the dressing without damageing newly formed tissue
- May be used as a primary dressing or a secondary dressing in combination with other wound dressings.

- Sterile - Single Use - Can be left undisturbed for 7 days.
