Yellow transparent PU film coated with hypoallergenic adhesive containing PVP-Iodine which reduces the risk of skin flora contamination throughout a surgical procedure.
The breathable polyurethane film allows skin to breathe underneath, so it prevents accumulation of moisture under the film and detachment of the dressing.
The polyurethane film is coated with hypoallergenic adhesive containing PVP-Iodine which has broad spectrum antimicrobial activity against gram positive and negative bacteria, MRSA, yeast and fungi. Moreover, the antimicrobial effect is sustained throughout long procedures.Mechanism of action of Iodine
Antimicrobial effect is due to the presence of diatomic elemental form of iodine (free iodine). It is believed that iodine precipitates the proteins of microorganisms by forming salts via direct halogenation. Approximately 90% of iodine, absorbed by bacterial cells, reappears as iodide, thus confirming oxidative interaction as the major bactericidal mechanism of topical iodine.Features
