A Scientifically Engineered Dressing That Fits
Mechanism of Action: Transforming Powder
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:
seals and protects the entire wound surface
allows oxygen transportation
manages exudate through vapor transpiration
prevents penetration of exogenous bacteria
Altrazeal® enables extended wear time, allowing the wound to heal without disturbing the wound bed with frequent dressing changes.
Application / Removal Guide: Low to Moderately Exuding Wounds
Altrazeal works best on clean wounds with mild to moderate exudation.

Efficiency and Outcomes: Transforming Expectations
Healthcare professionals are achieving remarkable results with Altrazeal.
Their patients appreciate its added comfort, reduced pain, extended wear time and ease of application, which in most cases does not require bulky secondary dressings and can be easily removed from the wound..
