Non woven island dressings
Cosmopor® steril is a self-adhesive island wound dressing that is ideal for acute, traumatic wound
management. Cosmopor® steril is made of 100% pure cotton, allowing it to conform to the bodies
contours and providing cushioning. The pad and surface layer are mounted on a soft, non-woven
adhesive sheet that is permeable to air. The wide, continuous polyacrylate adhesive border of the
dressing ensures secure adhesion and protection against contamination without adhering to the
wound. Cosmopor® steril is also available in a cost-effective Cosmopor® E steril. This dressing has
a viscose absorbent pad and a colophony free synthetic rubber based adhesive.
