Fabric adhesive wound dressings Durable and flexible with a strong adhesive so it stays in place longer Breathable fabric allows in air for superior healing Non-stick wound pad protects and cushions the wound Can be cut to a convenient size These fabric dressings are a convenient way to protect wounds. Durable with a strong adhesive, they stay in place to form a protective barrier over cuts and grazes. Made from a flexible and breathable fabric, they keep out external contaminants such as dirt and grit whilst still allowing air to reach the area for optimised healing. The non-stick wound pad forms a protective cushion to help guard wounds against bumps and scrapes and the dressings can be cut to size as required for extra convenience. It is a myth that keeping minor cuts and grazes uncovered and letting the air get to them helps them to heal faster. In fact, the reverse is true: Research shows that covered wounds heal more efficiently and have a reduced risk of infection. This is because standard dressings and band aids protect the wound from external influences and help prevent contamination. They also ensure the absorption of blood and other fluids as well as improving comfort. These fabric dressings provide protection from potentially damaging foreign bodies until the wound is completely healed.
