Silicone

Independence Australia stocks a wide range of silicone dressings. These dressings are coated with soft silicone as an adhesive or a wound contact layer. They are used to minimise the problems of pain and trauma at dressing change, to protect the skin around the wound and to promote comfort during wear. There are different types of soft silicone dressings including atraumatic wound contact layers, absorbent dressings for exuding wounds and also a dressing for the treatment of hypertrophic scars and keloids. Silicone wound dressings are comfortable to wear and can remain in place for a number of days.
