November 25, 2008

A composite comprising a wound dressing has been patented. It includes an anti-adhesive layer with a xerogel with silica and at least one hydrophobic organic silicon compound. The anti-adhesive layer has a relative coating weight on the wound dressing from 0.05% to 5%. An epoxysilane compound is effective to provide the anti-adhesive layer with partially hydrophilic properties.
