Burn Contact Dressings are broad spectrum 7 day use antimicrobial barrier burn dressings. The surface of the nylon-based burn dressing is plated with pure metallic silver, which is the source of the antimicrobial silver ion. The silver ions disassociate from the surface of the burn dressing in the presence of moisture. Silver ion release rates are maintained by maintaining the moisture content of the burn and wound dressing.
