ALIGNATES

A complete understanding of wounds and dressing components is essential when it comes to treatment. That’s why we’ve created our innovative range of alginate technologies in various grades to help our customers cater to their clients, on a personal level.

We offer a broad range of semi-finished medical materials and wound dressings in accordance with ISO 13485 and ISO 9001.

Our alginate dressings —derived from a natural polymer in the cell-wall of brown seaweed— absorb injury exudate and form a hydrophilic gel to protect the wound. They create a moist environment to promote healing and support the formation of granular tissue for an extensive range of wound types. Alginate dressings are of particular benefit for chronic wounds that produce moderate to large volumes of exudate, e.g. pressure ulcers, leg ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers.

  • Using Calcium Alginate enables our finished dressings to have:

    • A high absorbency rate
    • Optimum wound moisture management
    • Wound calcium donation
    • High dressing wet integrity
    • Fluid management
