Fibrosol® dressings are Carboxymethyl cellulose nonwoven dressings.
The characteristics of the fiber are such that it absorbs when it comes into intimate contact with liquid not via the usual mechanism of capillary action. Absorbed fluid is retained within the structure of the fiber. As Fibrosol® absorbs exudate it is rapidly converted from a dry dressing to a soft coherent gel. Fibrosol® maintains a moist environment for optimal wound healing, aids autolytic debridement, and is easily removed with little or no damage to newly formed tissue.
