WHAT IS ALTRAZEAL?

A Scientifically Engineered Dressing With Up To 30-Day Wear Time

Altrazeal® is a patented powder dressing specially engineered to cover and protect the wound and to provide an ideal moist wound healing environment that supports cellular function and tissue repair. 

Its non-resorbable, sterile granules aggregate when hydrated with saline to form a moist, flexible, oxygen permeable film that fits and seals the wound.

 

The skin-like barrier serves many functions that promote healthy granulation tissue growth:

  1. covers and protects the entire wound surface

2. allows oxygen transportation

3. manages exudate through vapor transpiration

4. prevents penetration of exogenous bacteria*

Altrazeal® enables extended wear time of up to 30 days, allowing the wound to heal without disturbing the wound bed with frequent dressing changes. It is particularly helpful in the management of complex, painful and difficult-to-dress wounds.
