• Soft, sterile, highly absorbent, and conformable
• Nonwoven wound dressing made of 100% carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)
• As wound exudates are absorbed, the CMC forms a soft gel which helps the dressing maintain a moist environment
• Supports the wound healing process
• Aids in the removal of nonviable material from the wound, without damaging newly formed tissue


3M™ Kerracel™ Gelling Fiber Dressing is indicated for the management of low to heavily exuding partial- and full-thickness chronic and acute wounds and to control minor bleeding in superficial wounds.
