Mextra Superabsorbent Dressing

Mextra Superabsorbent Dressing




Mextra Superabsorbent is intended for use on moderate to high exuding wounds. The polyacrylate superabsorbent particles have a protease modulating activity and provide an environment that’s conducive to healing. It absorbs wound exudate through the wound contact layer, retains the exudate within the core and reduces the risk of maceration. The fluid repellent non-woven backing acts as an exudate barrier and prevents exudate strike-through.

Benefits of Mextra Superabsorbent

  • Minimises the risk of leakage and maceration
  • Minimises the need for frequent dressing changes
  • Reduces treatment costs
  • Maintains structure and integrity without becoming bulky upon exudate absorption
  • Protects against fluid strike-through
  • Promotes patient comfort
  • Has protease modulating properties and provides a conductive environment for healing to proceed
  • Can be left for up to 7 days

Areas of Use

  • Venous leg ulcers
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers

How Does it Work?
The Mextra Superabsorbent dressing has 4 layers.
1. Hydrophilic wound contact layer that transmits fluid upwards into the superabsorbent layer, reducing the risk of maceration and damage to the peri wound area.
2. Distribution layer directs exudate evenly upwards into the absorbent layer
3. Absorbent layer with superabsorbent particles manages moderately to highly exuding wounds. It has high absorption and retention capacity. The polyacrylate superabsorbent particles have a protease modulating activity.
4. Fluid-repellent backing material that protects against fluid strike-through.
