Health C Melonin



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:

  1. Low adherent perforated film
  2. Highly absorbent cotton/acrylic pad
  3. Hydrophobic backing layer
