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
