BurnTec - hydrogel dressing for burns and skin injuries
BurnTec® hydrogel dressing is different from other first aid dressings. Owing to its stable-sheeting hydrogel structure, the BurnTec® dressing guarantees even coverage and distribution of cooling activity over the entire burn surface, even for the most extensive injuries.
In addition, the stable structure of the dressing also eliminates the risk of spilling or damaging the cooling hydrogel.
