AQUACEL® Family of Dressings

AQUACEL® launched nearly 20 years ago with a breakthrough technology — Hydrofiber™.

Since then, we’ve never stopped innovating.

Today, the AQUACEL® family includes a wide range of wound dressings — including AQUACEL® Extra and AQUACEL® Foam.

Our AQUACEL® Ag dressings are the #1 anti-microbial dressings today¹, combining the infection-fighting power of ionic silver with the unique capabilities of Hydrofiber™.
