Mepilex Border refers to a type of dressing which is used in minor wounds or injuries. This consists of self adherent properties and comes along with a soft core made of silicone for dressing the wound. The Mepilex Border is great for small injury areas as it adheres to the skin and helps to absorb the exudate from the wound effectively. It also helps to promote a moist surrounding to the wounded area which helps it to heal faster.
Mepilex Border self adhesive dressing - composition
The absorbent portion of the dressing is made of three parts thin foam like sheet of polyurethane, then comes a layer of fabric after which is the layer of polyacrylate fibers which together form a super absorbent composition. This core is then placed on a film of polyurethane and kept in place by a perforated layer of silicone adhesive that is spread to the margins of the dressing pad. The adhesion of the Mepilex Border prevents maceration of the peri-wound area by preventing the exudates of the wound from spreading to the sides.
