The benefits of ReSkin dressings are provided by two functional layers: the upper layer is made of Lycra® and the second, which is in contact with the skin, is made of soft SILPURAN® silicone from WACKER, an ultrapure silicone that satisfies the high medical requirements imposed. The silicone is very compatible with the skin, has good adhesive properties, can be removed atraumatically, is gas and water-vapor permeable, and is biocompatible.
Production to Own Standard
The special purity is achieved by production to WACKER’s Clean Operation Standard. This means that the A and B components of the silicone rubber are produced in a gray room, i.e. a production zone in which elevated standards of cleanliness apply. The product is filtered and packaged, and then transported into a Class 8 cleanroom.
