A NEW CHOICE TO HELP PROTECT FROM INFECTION
Nuvaderm Liquid Bandage has antimicrobial properties and helps protect wounds from infection. Laboratory tests demonstrate that it delivers a high kill rate on fungi, yeasts, and all types of bacteria, including MRSA, within 30 seconds of contact [see table below]. The product dries to form a flexible, breathable, protective film. Available in sterile and non-sterile configurations.
WHAT IS NUVADERM?
Nuvaderm is a liquid polymer that is composed of large, highly complex molecules. It contains no pharmaceutical agents. The product dries to form a thin, transparent, flexible film.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- Nuvaderm dries to form a film that acts as a barrier to microbes, dirt, and water.
- Nuvaderm forms a flexible, elastic film which makes it ideal for use on wounds with complex geometry such as joints.
- Nuvaderm dries to a thin film that is permeable to oxygen and water vapor, creating an optimal environment for wound healing.
- Nuvaderm wears off naturally as the wound heals.
