ActiFormCool® is a non adhesive, high water content hydrogel product, with a low sensitizing preservative. The dressing is a two sided, transparent hydrogel formed around a supporting polyethylene matrix. The Gel is permeable to water vapor, gases and small protein molecules, but impermeable to bacteria. ActiFormCool® provides a moist environment at the surface of the wound. The dressing will not adhere to the underlying tissue on removal, provided the dressing has not been allowed to dry out. Should a degree of drying take place then simply rehydrate the dressing with saline or water to facilitate removal.
