Zinc Calcium Alginate Dressings, manufactured by Kendall, are designed to interact with sodium in wounds to create an ionic exchange and help jump-start the body’s natural healing process. These unique dressings also feature the added benefits of zinc. This alginate dressing absorbs approximately 20 times their weight in exudate. They are easy and painless to remove with minimal tissue trauma. The unique gel block feature encourages vertical wicking which pulls exudates straight through the wound dressing for a more efficient exudate removal.
