Gelling Fibers

Absorbent wound covers that help manage drainage and removal of dead, damaged and infected tissue from the wound. Gelling fibers are typically composed of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, strengthening cellulose fibers, and other blended super absorbent materials. As wound fluid is absorbed into the dressing, a gel forms, which assists in maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound healing and the formation of granulation tissue. Gelling fiber dressings can retain and control exudate levels to reduce the risk of periwound maceration, and can also conform to various wound shapes and be removed in one piece.
