The Acticoat Flex 3 dressings consist of a flexible low adherent polyester layer coated with our patented silver technology. Acticoat Flex 3is highly conformable dressings that follow the body’s contours to maintain contact with the wound surface.

The dressings are low adherent, which helps minimise wound trauma at dressing changes. The antimicrobial barrier properties of Acticoat Flex 3 remain effective for a minimum of 3 days.
