Our high gelling Alginate Dressing is a highly absorbent dressing, ideally designed for superficial and cavity wounds with moderately to heavily exuding. The alginate fiber contains more mannuronic acid to absorb large amount of fluid， the fibers form gel-like when contact with exudates.
High absorbency can be compared to the market leading brands, absorbs 20 times its own weight.
Alginate dressing absorbs fluid and transforms fiber to cohesive gel; the "gel block" character reduces the risk of maceration.
The gel provides a moist environment for the wound bed and facilitates healing process.
Does not adhere to wound site, the dressing can be easily removed without pain or trauma.
Alginate dressing is indicated for the moderate to heavily exuding wounds, for example
Leg venous and arterial ulcer
Diabetic foot ulcer
First and second degree burns
Skin grafts and donor site
Post-operative and traumatic wounds
