The AQUACEL® Burn Dressing, Reinforced with Nylon, absorbent dressing is a soft, sterile, non-woven hydroentangled dressing comprised of Hydrofiber® with nylon thread used to stitch bond the product along the length. This conformable and highly absorbent dressing absorbs wound fluid and creates a soft gel which maintains a moist environment which supports the body’s healing process and aids in the removal of unnecessary material from the wound (Autolytic debridement), without damaging newly formed tissue.
