Alginates

  • Alginates are made of soft non-woven fibers derived from seaweed.
  • They are usually in the forms of pads, ropes or ribbons.
  • Alginates absorb wound exudate and form a gel-like covering over the wound, maintaining a moist wound environment.
  • Most alginates absorb many times their own weight.
  • The dry dressing, however, is extremely lightweight.
