Product Overview

Maxorb Extra Ag is a highly absorbent, non woven pad composed of a high G (guluronic acid) calcium alginate, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and ionic silver.

Exposure to wound exudate dissolves the silver and stimulates the release of silver ions. As more fluid is absorbed over time, more silver ions are released, creating a controlled-release antimicrobial effect.


  • Silver ions protect from a broad spectrum of microorganisms, including MRSA and VRE
  • Releases extremely small amounts of silver that do not damage healthy tissue
  • Biocompatible
  • Non-irritating
  • Non-sensitizing
  • Will not harm new granulation tissue
  • Cost-effective
  • Easy dressing changes
  • Highly absorbent
  • Reduces odor
  • Fluid will not wick laterally
  • Maxorb Extra Ag may be left in place for up to 21 days
  • Dressing change frequency will depend on amount of drainage
  • Initially it may be necessary to change the dressing every 24 hours
  • Rope: 12" x 1"
