Siltec has been developed to facilitate exudate management. On the one hand, the silicone layer provides for gentle adherence to the surrounding skin and minimum discomfort when changing the dressing. Newly formed tissue enjoys optimal protection under a moist environment. On the other hand, the foam core with super-absorbers ensures reliable absorption in slightly to heavily exuding wounds. Moreover, this core has an excellent retention capacity, even under compression

- diabetic ulcers
- arterial ulcers
- skin grafts
Cutimed® Siltec is a high-tech product: Its effectiveness is based on the interaction of state-of-the-art materials.
Finally, a wound dressing which combines all advantages in a single product. Cutimed®
Siltec has been especially developed for the treatment of chronic wounds. Its ease of application is matched only by the sophistication of its product technology: its silicone layer and super absorbers. The effectiveness of Cutimed®
Siltec has been confirmed in both, in-vitro and in-vivo experience.
Silicone = Protection
Painfree and atraumatic dressing changes
The perforated silicone layer ensures most gentle adherence to the skin surrounding the wound without any adhesion in the moist wound.
Best possible protection for new tissue
The very evenly perforated silicone layer protects the new, fragile layer of epidermal cells which contributes to the healing process.
Fluid handling capacity
Super-absorbent particles in the foam core do not only absorb a multiple of their own weight – they reliably bind exudate, even under compression. The polyurethane film on the outside of the dressing is permeable to vapours but prevents wound exudate from strike- through.
Minimal risk of maceration
size between dry (left) and soaked (right) super-absorbers. Hydrogen bridges bind the water so securely that, even when subject to pressure, the water is not released. Vertical absorption through the polyurethane foam and the hydro- phobic wound contact layer minimises the risk of macerations in the peri-ulcer skin.
