The dressing can release moisture and absorb a limited amount of exudate, thereby providing a moist wound environment which has a stimulating effect on wound healing, because of the high water content of approx. 60%. Thus it is stimulating granulation and epithelization. HydroTac transparent (comfort) is transparent and provides an atraumatic dressing change. Due to its transparency, wound inspection is possible at any time without removal of dressing. The product is covered with a semi-permeable layer to prevent bacterial penetration.
