A woven, nylon fabric with sealed edges that is non-adherent,
non-irritating and hypoallergenic. The wound contact material is placed
over the wound and under gauze or other absorbent dressing.
Tegadermô Contact Layer is a woven nylon
fabric with sealed edges that is a lint-free, non-adherent, non-toxic,
non-irritating, and hypoallergenic material. Clinical studies show that
Tegadermô Contact Layer can be left on the wound for up to 7 days.
Tegadermô Contact Layer can be used under gauze or other absorbent
dressings, while allowing exudates to pass through to an absorbent
outer barrier. The non-adherence of this material will minimize
disruption of healthy granulation tissue and re-epithelialized surfaces.
