Melolite Low Adherent Absorbent Dressings
Melolite consists of a highly absorbent cotton and acrylic fibre pad which is heat bonded on one side to a very thin perforated polyester film.
The film side of the dressing is placed next to the wound.
Melolite consists of three layers:
1) Low adherent perforated film
2) Highly absorbent cotton/acrylic pad
3) Hydrophobic backing layer
Low adherent perforated film
Allows for rapid drainage of exudate, reducing trauma to healing tissue.
