ConvaMax™ Superabsorber Border
ConvaMax™ Superabsorber Border by ConvaTec is a dressing designed to manage moderate to high levels of fluid and exudate. The superabsorbent central pad absorbs exudate and forms a gel, locking it away in the core, preventing release back to the wound. The protective blue backing minimizes the risk of leakage and strikethrough of exudate into bandaging, clothing or bedding. The conformable wicking layer provides an interface with the wound and wicks fluid into the core.
ConvaMax™ is also available in a version with adhesive silicone across the wound contact surface. The silicone provides additional protection to fragile skin by aiding gentle, skin friendly removal to minimize tissue damage. The adhesive version may also be used in anatomical areas where additional adhesive fixation could cause discomfort, but clothing could support the dressing (e.g. dressing a pilonidal sinus) to minimize dressing movement.
