Occlusive dressings are the foundation of wound care and have been shown to speed epithelialization and healing of
surgical sites. Many different dressings have been introduced over the years including antibacterial ointments with
gauze and adhesive, hydrocolloid bandages, and liquid adhesives. All of these have their limitations and advantages.
We introduce our experience with a new organic polymer in solvent which when applied to a wound forms a flexible
occlusive bandage. The material has been shown to have antimicrobial properties and be well-tolerated by patients.
