Molnlycke Mepilex Transfer Soft Silicone Exudate Transfer Dressing vertically moves exudate away from the wound, into a secondary absorbent pad. This minimizes the risk of maceration. This risk is further minimized by the Safetac layer that seals around the wound margins and prevents the exudate from leaking onto the surrounding skin.

Mepilex Transfer Dressing Key Points:

  • Suitable for medium to high exuding wounds
  • Enables management of difficult-to-dress wounds
  • Can be cut into different wound shapes
  • Promotes patient comfort during wear
  • Minimizes pain upon dressing removal

How Mepilex Exudate Transfer Dressing works?

Mepilex Transfer with Safetac technology is a thin and conformable dressing. The soft silicone Safetac layer makes direct contact with the wound and the surrounding skin even on irregular surfaces. It seals around the wound margins. The foam structure of Mepilex dressing allows the wound exudate to move vertically into a secondary dressing. When used properly in combination with a secondary dressing, it maintains a moist wound environment.
