Medical - Medical (general) / wound dressings
French term or phrase: l'enduction
Dear all

I am translating a text about the advantages of a specific type of wound dressing.

Here is the context:

L'enduction de silicone formant une barrière hydrophobe latérale entre la plaie humide et la peau périlésionnelle sèche.

I would appreciate any help here as I have found nothing convincing.

"Adhesive/impregnation" are possibilities, but I am not at all sure here.

disagree  Tony M: Refs. have nothing to do with the given context, and the collocations of 'silicone' + 'induction' are purely fortuitous
