Alginates

Base alginate rollstock

bulk-fibres

Alginate produced from seaweed, absorb exudate and help to stop bleeding.  It absorb exudate away from the wound whilst maintaining an ideal moist wound healing environment.

The moist wound environment facilitated by alginates promotes debridement of devitalised tissue, thereby assisting in wound bed preparation.  The alginate fibres form a gel when in contact with exudate, and help support the control of minor bleeding.

Our alginate bulk rollstock is available in a variety of formulations from high gelling mannuronic types to high guluronic fibres that are designed to be more integral when wet.
