TIELLE™ Dressing with LIQUALOCK™ Advanced Absorption Technology is an Adhesive Foam Dressing for Low to Moderately Exuding Wounds

When the clinical choice is made to initiate moist wound healing with a foam dressing, TIELLE™ Dressing effectively manages the fluid away from the wound bed to help prevent skin maceration and leakage. Excess wound fluid causes skin maceration and wound breakdown. Removal of this fluid from the wound bed and surrounding skin can promote wound healing.
TIELLE™ Dressing may be worn for up to 7 days depending on the wound conditions and exudate levels, which may result in fewer dressing changes. Fewer dressing changes helps save time and costs.

How it Works


TIELLE™ Dressing — Designed not to leak

TIELLE™ Dressing is comprised of 3 layers:
  1. LIQUALOCK™ Advanced Absorption Technology layer locks fluid away to reduce the risk of maceration, excoriation and leakage2,4
  2. A superabsorbent non-woven wicking layer*** distributes fluid across the dressing, maximizing moisture vapor transmission2
  3. A moisture permeable polyurethane backing, with skin-friendly adhesive, facilitates moisture vapour transfer
Absorbency and fluid handling
  • TIELLE™ Dressing helps maintain a moist wound healing environment by combining absorbency with moisture vapor transmission1,2,3
  • The hydropolymer layer expands and conforms to the wound bed2,3
  • Fluid is continuously transferred away from the wound bed through the combination of absorbency and moisture vapor transmission2
  • The use of TIELLE™ Dressing may lead to a reduction in the number of required dressing changes2
  • The hydropolymer is designed not to gel out, liquify, or break down, minimizing the risk of particles left behind3,5
  • The skin-friendly adhesive border assists and facilitates pain-free removal5
  • The polyurethane backing is shower-proof, vapor permeable and protects against external contamination2,3,5,6
