Cutimed® Siltec® PLUS

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 “PLUS” stands for higher adhesion within the Cutimed Siltec product range.

  • Gentle with high adherence
  • Reliable exudate management
  • Water-repellent and breathable backing

Intended Purpose

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

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

Gentle with high adherence

The perforated silicone wound contact layer - with higher adherence than Cutimed® Siltec® - prevents adherence to newly formed tissue, protects wound margins and ensures atraumatic dressing changes.1, 2, 3, 4, 5. The silicone wound contact layer also allows an easy application and is readjustable.
