Silver High Performance Dressing

Our Silver High Performance Dressing is both high-gelling and highly absorbent utilising a combination of CMC and Silver to provide fast and sustained protection against a broad spectrum of bacteria, yeast and mould.

Exceptional absorbency

The AMS Silver High Performance Dressing provides greater absorbency and can hold more exudate.

Intact removal

A hidden integrity layer gives strength and security to the dressing even when gelled. This allows for one-piece removal from the wound bed minimising disruption and patient discomfort at dressing changes.
