Skin and Wound Management

Reinforced gelling fiber

Product Description

Cardinal Health™ Reinforced Gelling Fiber dressings are sterile, non-woven calcium/sodium alginates consisting of a high M alginate in a cohesive fiber construction. As wound fluid is absorbed, the alginate forms a gel, which assists in maintaining a moist environment for optimal wound healing and the formation of granulation tissue.

  • Highly absorbent gelling fibers wick and retain exudate away from the wound bed
  • Cohesive fiber construction facilitates easy intact/ one-piece atraumatic removal


May be used for the management of moderate to heavy exuding, partial to full thickness wounds, including:

  • Pressure ulcers
  • Graft and donor site
  • Venous, arterial and diabetic ulcers
  • Post-operative surgical wounds
  • Lacerations and abrasions
  • Cavity wounds
  • Trauma wounds
  • Superficial and partial thickness burns
  • Can also be used to control minor bleeding in superficial wounds.


Dry eschar, third-degree burns, surgical implantation, heavy bleeding and individuals with known sensitivity to alginates.
