Introducing ConvaMax™ - the NEW superabsorber dressing from ConvaTec


High fluid absorption*

Exudate from chronic wounds can be corrosive to the wound bed and intact skin. ConvaMax™ absorbs high levels of exudate into the Superabsorbent (SAP) core (up to 170g/100cm2) locking it away from the wound and helping to promote skin integrity.



Extra protection*

ConvaMax™ can be used as a primary or secondary dressing. When an additional primary dressing is required, it may be used with Hydrofiber® dressing such as AQUACEL® EXTRA™. Exudate can transfer through the Hydrofiber® layer and be absorbed by ConvaMax™, providing a combination of an advanced wound contact layer and high absorption capacity.


High retention of fluid and bacteria*

Once exudate has been absorbed, ConvaMax™ retains the fluid within the SAP core, ensuring it is not released back to the wound, bandaging or clothing.

Soft and conformable*

It's soft on the skin, easy to apply and easy to remove for patient satisfaction. The protective blue backing prevents strike through and maintains conformability.

Choosing a dressing that effectively manages the exudate level of the wound can result in extended wear time, producing a positive impact on wastage and costs, and may also help with healing.

When ConvaMax™ works best

Manages excess moisture to protect skin integrity

Where there is a real risk of skin damage due to high levels of exudate, ConvaMax™ is ideal. It is available in non-adhesive and silicone adhesive forms, providing complete flexibility to support your care protocol. This includes pressure bandaging or the use of an additional primary dressing.
