Gelling fiber dressing
Gelling fiber dressing with superior fluid retention
Exufiber® is a sterile non-woven gelling fiber dressing made from highly absorbent polyvinyl alcohol fibers. It can be used to manage a wide range of exuding wounds including cavity wounds, leg and foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, and surgical wounds. Upon contact with wound exudate, Exufiber transforms into a gel that facilitates moist wound healing and ease of removal during dressing changes.
Exufiber has a high absorption and retention capacity, reducing the risk of leakage and maceration.
- Superior fluid retention capacity when compared to a leading gelling fiber dressing*
- Less risk of leakage and maceration
- Transforms into a gel that facilitates a moist wound healing environment
- Easy one-piece dressing removal which may save time and potentially help provide patient comfort
- Combining Exufiber and Mepilex Border all-in-one dressing, with Safetac® creates an effective wound management option for highly exuding wounds

How to use Exufiber
See these easy-to-follow instructions for using Exufiber.
How Exufiber works
The mechanically secured fibers are made of a strong synthetic material that swells upon contact with fluid, locking it securely away. This gives Exufiber higher fluid retention rates compared to a leading gelling fiber.
Hydrolock® Technology – Gelling fiber dressings reinvented
Exufiber is made using a patented processing method, with a different material from traditional gelling fibers. Our Hydrolock Technology locks in exudate, blood, and bacteria.
Viewed under a microscope, you can see that Exufiber is pack with full of tightly entangled fibers that minimize the free space for fluid or exudate to flow, which in turn boosts the entire dressing’s integrity. The result is excellent tensile strength for easy removal
