Melolin consists of a highly absorbent cotton and polyester fibre pad with a hydrophobic backing layer which is heat bonded on one side to a very thin perforated polyester film.

Benefits Melolin has a low adherent perforated film which allows for rapid drainage of any fluid that may leak from the wound, thereby reducing trauma to healing tissue. The highly absorbent cotton/polyester pad provides patient comfort and minimises pain on removal. Melolin is easily cut to shape and retains its integrity when cut. It provides a significant improvement in terms of strike-through and, therefore, fewer dressing changes will be required.

  • Cushions and Protects
  • Safe to use
  • Inert and non-sensitising
  • Delays time to strike through
  • Sizes 5cm x 5cm and 10cm x 10cm
  • Sold singly or in packs of 5 dressings

Recommended Usage

Melolin is suitable for post-operative and casualty use, in particular for light to moderately exuding wounds including clean and sutured wounds, abrasions, lacerations, and minor burns. The film side of the dressing is placed next to the wound.
