Effective. Reliable. Trusted.

Clinical experience has shown that alginates possess a combination of characteristics that make them an ideal wound dressing for the treatment of many types of wet wounds. By combining fluid absorption with gel formation, dressings keep the wound moist but not macerated. This helps to create an environment in which to promote healing and reduce pain.

SFM’s calcium alginate material complies with the requirements of the British Pharmacopoeia (BP) 1993, Addendum 1995, monograph “Alginate Fibres”, classification “Type I fibre”, and is manufactured in accordance with SFM’s standard operating procedures.

Calcium alginate fabric can be provided in roll form, as slit reels, as non-sterile cut pieces or packaged, labelled and sterilised topical or cavity dressings.
