WHAT IS ALTRAZEAL?

A Scientifically Engineered Dressing That Fits

Mechanism of Action: Transforming Powder

Clean wound with saline and pour granules to cover moistened wound bed Drip saline to hydrate if needed

Oxygen-permeable granules absorb moisture to form a moist skin-like matrix that allows excess exudate to flow via vapor transpiration

Dressing fits and seals the wound

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. seals 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, allowing the wound to heal without disturbing the wound bed with frequent dressing changes. 

 

APPLICATION GUIDE

Step 1: Clean wound, moisten with saline and pour powder
