Cutimed® Siltec® B

is a silicone coated, sterile, absorbent polyurethane foam dressing with superabsorbent stripes to additionally absorb and lock wound exudate. The wound contact surface allows adherence to the periwound skin but not to the moist wound bed or newly formed epithelial tissue. The additional silicone adhesive border allows secure and gentle fixation. 

  • Self-adhesive silicone border
  • Reliable exudate management

  • Anatomical fit 

Intended Purpose

Cutimed Siltec B is indicated for exuding wounds such as venous and arterial ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, surgical incisions, skin grafts and donor sites, lacerations or abrasions. Cutimed Siltec B is recommended for wounds with low to high exudate levels.

Wear time: Cutimed Siltec B can remain in place for up to 7 days, depending on wound conditions and saturation of wound dressing.
