Farmactive Schiuma PU (polyurethane) is available in two versions: non adhesive and with adhesive edges. The non-adhesive version is a sterile dressing with three layers. The top layer is a semi impermeable, breathable polyurethane membrane. The middle layer is made of absorbent polyurethane foam. The layer applied to the wound is an absorbent polyurethane membrane that does not stick to the wound itself. In the version with adhesive edges, the polyurethane membrane of the top layer is lined with an acrylic adhesive that secures the absorbent, non-adhesive polyurethane foam centre to the perilesional skin and requires no secondary bandaging. The version with silicone contact layer provides a light bonding to the lesion allowing a painless removal.

Treatment of moderately to highly exudative skin lesions in the granulation stage, such as:

  • bedsores
  • venous ulcers of the lower limbs
  • diabetic ulcers
  • skin graft sites
  • surgical and post-surgery wounds
  • wounds in the granulation stage first and second-degree burns


  • strong absorbing capacity, as shown by its high absorbability: 0.95g/cm2/24h in the non-adhesive version and 0.42g/cm2/24h in the non-adhesive version
  • high exudate retention to prevent exudate from spreading laterally and causing the maceration of perilesional skin breathable and permeable to gas and water vapour, with a high MVTR (Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate): 940g/m2/24h (1421g/100m2/24 for adhesive version)
  • thickness of non-adhesive version 5 mm — thickness of adhesive version 2 mm
  • soft, elastic and conformable rounded edges to prevent curling at the corners
  • impermeable to liquids
  • barrier against bacteria
  • atraumatic removal, without residues
  • individual sterile packaging, opens easily without releasing particles
  • radiation-sterilized
