Kendall Calcium Alginate

Kendall™ Calcium Alginate dressings are a soft, sterile, non-woven dressing composed of calcium-sodium alginate fibres. When Kendall™ Calcium Alginate dressings come into contact with wound exudate they develop a gel consistency. Also available is Kendall™ Calcium Alginate with Zinc providing added benefits.

Key Benefits

  • Highly absorbent – absorbs 15-20x its own weight in exudate, thus reducing dressing changes
  • Vertical wicking – provides a moist wound healing environment,  binds exudate thus preventing skin maceration
  • Stable gel formula – enhanced dressing integrity
  • Non-adherent – easy, painless dressing removal that minimises tissue trauma and maximises patient comfort
  • Conformable – allows full mobility of dressing site
  • High calcium content – aids haemostasis
  • Dressing and rope format – can be customised/trimmed to fit a variety of wounds and sizes with the ability to fill deep or tunnel wounds
