A breathable, absorbent dressing for low to moderately exuding wounds.
Mepore is a self-adhesive absorbent dressing that has an absorbent wound pad located centrally on a piece of apertured, non-woven polyester fabric coated with a layer of an acrylic adhesive. The wound pad is made of a viscose nonwoven coated with a polyolefin layer to give a smooth surface and render it low-adherent. The polyester backing makes the product permeable and highly flexible, allowing it to conform well to body contours. The dressing is protected by two pieces of overlapping release film which are easy to remove and allows for aseptic application.
