Product Description

Cutimed Alginate Dressing 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. The exchange of calcium ions within the dressing with sodium ions, which are present in the exudate, transforms the alginate into a moist gel.

  • Facilitates moist wound healing by maintaining a moist environment
  • Has hemostatic properties due to calcium ion release from the alginate dressing in contact with body fluids
  • Reduces risk of maceration because only one layer of exudate is maintained at the wound surface but excess exudate is absorbed
  • Helps to clean the wound bacteria that are trapped in the gel formed by the exudate absorbed and are then removed during dressing change
  • Retains exudate in gel reduces the risk of leakage and allows for as much activity as possible
  • Excellent wet integrity enables rapid dressing changes with minimal discomfort
  • High absorption reduces number of dressing changes
  • Easy cut-to-size customizable application
  • Highly flexible fibers conform to every wound base
  • Sterile
