absorbent laminates for

wound care

Super absorbing performance.

Gelok superabsorbent wound care laminates utilize medical grade super- absorbent polymers that absorb many times their weight in aqueous exudates and lock them 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 super-absorbent wound care laminates ideal for use in wound dressings and other disposable medical devices.
