Calcium sodium alginate dressing

A calcium sodium alginate (80% calcium and 20% sodium) made out of natural seaweed. The alginate component enables the dressing to absorb up to 20 times its own weight in exudate. *



  • Moderate to heavily exuding wounds
  • Shallow and cavity wounds
  • Venous, arterial, pressure and diabetic foot ulcers
  • Donor sites
  • Abrasions and lacerations
  • Superficial and partial thickness burns

We recommend Hypafix® Transparent and Leukomed® T as secondary dressings.

*Data on file

  • Facilitates moist wound healing by maintaining a moist environment
  • Haemostatic properties due to the release of calcium ions when in contact with exudate
  • Reduces the risk of maceration due to high levels of absorbency

Mode of action

  • The exchange of calcium ions (within the dressing) with sodium ions (in exudate) transforms the alginate into a moist gel
