Calcium Alginate Dressings



Alginate dressings are absorbent, nonadherent, biodegradable, nonwoven fibers derived from brown seaweed. They are composed of calcium salts of alginic acid and mannuronic and guluronic acids. Alginate dressings in contact with sodium-rich solutions such as wound drainage impose the calcium ions to undergo an exchange for the sodium ions, forming a soluble sodium alginate gel. This gel maintains a moist wound bed and supports a therapeutic healing environment.
Alginates can absorb fluid 20 times their own weights that can vary based on the particular product.

Main component:

Calcium Alginate
