The story behind Hydrolock® Technology
The fibres in Hydrolock Technology are interwoven in such a way that the exudate has less space to circulate freely and is locked in to the dressing. This gives Exufiber® its unique ‘lock-in’ properties and high ‘dressing integrity’.
Simplifying dressing choices
Exufiber is intended to be used on a wide range of exuding wounds:
- Pressure ulcer
- Surgical wound
- Diabetic foot ulcer
- Venous leg ulcer
as well as on partial thickness burns, donor sites and malignant wounds.
Stays intact for clean and easy, one-piece removal
Hydrolock® Technology keeps exudate locked into its fibres, but this structure also gives Exufiber® its high wet tensile strength to keep the dressing intact when wet, without the need for further reinforcement, making it easy to remove in one piece
Softly conforms for greater comfort
Exufiber® gently conforms to the wound bed when both wet and dry, making it easy to apply and designed to be comfortable for the patient.
Locks in exudate to reduce the risk of leaks and maceration
Exufiber® is made with Hydrolock® Technology to both absorb exudate and keep it locked in to the fibres. This includes exudate containing bacteria, which stays locked in , preventing the bacteria from re-entering the wound bed.
How it works
Hydrolock Technology for a dressing that locks in and stays intact
Superior* lock-in properties for less risk of maceration. 98.6% of clinicians found Exufiber’s® ability to lock in exudate as ‘good’ or ‘very good’ * When comparing lab test results , for retention under pressure with Aquacel®, Aquacel® Extra™, Durafiber◊ and UrgoClean® dressings
Exufiber® with Mepilex® Border Flex
Mepilex Border Flex combines innovative Flex Technology with our proven Safetac® Technology to create a secondary dressing that stays on and is uniquely conformable. Using Exufiber and Mepilex Border Flex together delivers the benefits of both dressings and promotes an undisturbed healing environment for the wound.
