Post-Op Visible provides greater permeability to allow easier vapor passage. This dressing combines the features of increased permeability with the high MVTR REACTIC hydrophilic polyurethane film. High MVTR film has a unique molecular structure making it significantly more permeable to water vapor than ordinary films in the presence of moisture. The patented REACTIC film is 3 to 8 times more permeable to water vapor than standard film dressings. The dressing can transform in the presence of moisture allowing excess moisture to evaporate.
OpSite is manufactured by Smith & Nephew. This manufacturer makes other Transparent Dressings, including the original Post Op as well as Flexigrid, Flexifix, and Transparent Film.
