The absorbent pad above wicks away the wound discharge intersperses the moisture throughout the foam. The backing material will protect the wound from external infectious material, yet allows the wound ample air circulation. With supplemental moisture along with and a means of air circulation, an ideal 'climate' is created to promote healing.

The Safetac layer ensures that the dressing can be changed without damaging the wound or surrounding skin.
