Wound contact layer
Gentle two-sided wound contact layer – minimise pain for your patients during dressing changes
Mepitel® is a gentle two-sided wound contact layer with Safetac® – the original less-pain contact layer with silicone adhesion. It's designed to mould softly to skin without sticking to the moist wound
Safetac also protects new tissue and intact skin to support undisturbed healing
The perforated design lets exudate pass through to a secondary absorbent dressing. And you can leave it in place, delivering topical treatments
- True undisturbed healing – it can remain in place for up to 14 days
- Doesn’t leave residues and maintains functional qualities over time

When to use Mepitel
Mepitel with Safetac protects the wound and the skin. It’s designed and clinically proven for use in treating a wide range of wounds such as skin tears, skin abrasions, sutured wounds, partial thickness burns, lacerations, partial and full thickness grafts, diabetic ulcers, venous and arterial ulcers. Mepitel can also be used as a protective layer on non-exuding wounds, blisters, fragile skin and exposed fragile tissues.
The open structure of Mepitel allows, where clinically indicated, topical treatments to pass through onto the wound.
You can use Mepitel together with Mesorb®; or for highly exuding wounds, with Mextra® Superabsorbent; with Tubifast® fixation or under compression bandages. Mepitel can also be used in conjunction with Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT).
