Areas of use
MepitelŪ is designed for a wide range of traumatic wounds such as skin tears, abrasions, second degree burns and chronic wounds as well as for fixation of grafts. Due to the Safetac properties, Mepitel is especially suitable for painful wounds and wounds with compromised or fragile surrounding skin. See Safetac Technology.
How Mepitel works
Mepitel is made of a transparent polyamide net coated with a soft silicone layer. The structure of Mepitel allows exudate to pass into an outer absorbent dressing. Mepitel prevents the outer dressing from sticking to the wound and therefore minimises trauma and pain when changing dressings.
