Aquanova™ gelling fibre technology

Aquanova™ is an advanced, patented, fibrous dressing technology which transforms in the presence of moisture to form a soft conformable gel with superior absorbency compared to existing alginate dressings. The gel forms an intimate contact layer with the wound creating an ideal moist healing environment.

Without the need for strengthening fibres Aquanova offers superior wet integrity compared to CMC gelling dressings which facilitates easy removal from the wound site.

Available in both standard and antimicrobial silver versions, Aquanova has the ability to bind matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) and, with the inclusion of silver, the potential to minimise the risk of wound site infections.
