Antimicrobial Silicone Platform
Covalon’s patent pending antimicrobial clear silicone adhesive film technology combines silver and chlorhexidine right in the adhesive, providing superior comfort and protection throughout. The technology boasts broad spectrum antimicrobial activity of at least 7 days and meets the current FDA standards for antimicrobial claims of a “greater than 4-log reduction”. The dressing material, which remains transparent for up to 7 days, allows longer site visualization and has the potential to reduce frequent and costly dressing changes. The soft skin silicone material is comfortable to wear, and has been proven to cause less irritation to the skin and significantly less painful upon removal versus dressing using acrylic adhesives.
