Melolin consists of a highly absorbent cotton and acrylic fibre pad which is heat bonded on one side to a very thin perforated polyester film.
The film side of the dressing is placed next to the wound.
Melolin consists of three layers:
· Low adherent perforated film
· Highly absorbent cotton/acrylic pad
· Hydrophobic backing layer
Allows for rapid drainage of exudate, reducing trauma to healing tissue
