‘Lok’ in on healing

Superabsorbent Laminates and Airlaids

Wound Care

Gelok superabsorbent laminates for wound care and TotalCore airlaids utilize medical grade superabsorbent polymers that can absorb many times their weight in exudate and blood and lock it in with high retention capacity. Because liquids are locked physically by hydrogen bonding they will not be released even under relatively high pressure. These qualities make Gelok International superabsorbent cores for wound care ideal for use in wound dressings and other disposable medical products.

Because liquids are locked physically by hydrogen bonding they will not be released even under relatively high pressure. These qualities make Gelok superabsorbent laminates for wound care ideal for use in wound dressings and other disposable medical devices. Superabsorbent laminates can also be constructed from non-woven substrates by incorporating medical grade adhesives.
