Biatain Fiber with HexaLock Technology for highly exuding, sloughy and cavity wounds, including undermining

How does it work?


• Effectively absorbs and retains exudate and bacteria, reducing exudate pooling.
• Keeps in shape with minimal shrinkage, minimising the risk of gap creation and further exudate pooling.
• Forms a cohesive gel upon contact with exudate. It helps ensure a moist wound healing environment and easy one-piece removal.

When to use it:


Biatain Fiber is indicated for use in:

• Chronic wounds such as diabetic ulcers, leg ulcers (arterial ulcers, venous ulcers and leg ulcers of mixed aetiology), pressure ulcers (stage II-IV).
• Acute wounds such as oncology wounds, traumatic wounds, partial-thickness burns, donor sites, and post-operative surgical wounds.

The strength to lock exudate

Biatain Fiber with HexaLock Technology

Pooling of wound exudate can occur when exudate is not managed effectively or when the wound bed is not covered by an absorbent dressing, leading to an increased risk of bacterial growth and infection. Unmanaged exudate can also leak onto the wound edges and the periwound skin, which may cause maceration and delay wound healing.


HexaLock Technology gives Biatain Fiber the strength to manage exudate, reducing the risk of maceration and infection.

One important function of a gelling fibre is its ability to retain exudate, ensuring that it does not leak back into the wound or on periwound skin.

The unique HexaLock Technology integrates the gelling fibres in a reinforced hexagon net, giving Biatain Fiber the strength to lock in exudate to reduce exudate pooling for optimal healing conditions. 

Less shrinkage to minimise gap creation

If a gelling fibre shrinks when absorbing exudate, gaps between the dressing and the wound bed create space for exudate pooling.

Biatain Fiber also conforms to the wound bed and thanks to HexaLock Technology, the dressing will keep in shape when used, minimising the risk of gap creation and exudate pooling. 

Easy one-piece removal

Caring for wounds where gelling fibres are indicated is already a challenging and time-consuming process. This challenge increases if the wound dressing disintegrates, requiring a piece by piece removal and creates uncertainty if all residues have been removed.

Biatain Fiber forms a cohesive gel that ensures an easy one-piece removal with minimal risk of leaving residues in the wound.

Biatain Fiber is easy to apply and remove

Biatain Fiber helps you to take care of the wound as easily and effectively as possible. Easy, one-piece removal ensures 

reduced discomfort and pain for your patients. 


The ideal solutions to reduce exudate pooling

Biatain Fiber is intended for use as a primary wound dressing. The choice of secondary dressing will depend on the characteristics of the wound.

Healthcare professionals recommend Biatain Silicone as a secondary dressing when using Biatain Fiber*. The conforming foam dressing, Biatain Silicone with 3DFit Technology, absorbs vertically and retains exudate.
