Cutimed Alginate Dressing
Cutimed Alginate is a calcium sodium alginate (80% calcium and 20% sodium) made out of natural seaweed. The alginate component enables the dressing to absorb up to 20 times its own weight in exudate. Cutimed Alginate offers a broad performance spectrum, but is particularly useful for moderate to heavily exuding wounds, shallow wounds, lesions with rough edges, or deeper sites that are hard to dress.
Features and benefits:
- Maintains a moist environment
- Fast gelling
- Highly absorbent
- Retains the exudate in a gel
- Excellent wet integrity
Wound characteristics
