Petrolatum Emulsion Contact Layer

Product Description

Cardinal Health™ Petrolatum Emulsion Contact Layer dressings are sterile, occlusive wound dressings made with a flexible, non-adherent knitted cellulose acetate fabric coated with a formulated petrolatum emulsion. The dressings are used to help aid fluid transfer into the secondary dressing. The non-adherent property of the dressing helps to facilitate atraumatic removal by providing protection to the wound bed during dressing changes.


May be used to allow passage of exudate and protection of the wound bed during dressing changes for a wide variety of partial to full thickness wounds, including:

  • Skin grafts
  • Venous ulcers
  • Surgical sites
  • First- and second-degree burns
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Lacerations and abrasions
  • Cosmetic surgery sites
