Hypafix® transparent is a transparent and waterproof polyurethane film coated with a very skin-friendly polyacrylate adhesive. The waterproof film offers optimal protection for the wound. It is waterproof and a bacterial barrier. Its semi-permeable structure allows the skin to breathe thus reducing the risk of macerations. The extra-thin film conforms like a second skin to the contours of the body, including joints and extremities. The transparency of the film keeps the dressing inconspicuous and allows visual inspection of the wound environment at all times.
