Zorflex® Wound Dressings
Zorflex® is a range of 100% pure activated carbon cloth wound dressings. The contact layer dressing’s unique action combats microbes and odour, and supports wound healing, even in chronic, non-healing wounds
Zorflex® enables accelerated healing of chronic non-healing wounds, venous leg ulcers, post-operative wounds and infected wounds. The wound dressing effectively kills micro-organisms through the action of physical forces and is anti-odour. Manufactured in the UK and is FDA and CE certified. Made up of 100% activated carbon, does not contain any additive, is safe and non-cytotoxic.
Zorflex® cloth is knitted, 100% pure activated carbon cloth with interconnected fibres that enhance antimicrobial properties over other activated carbon dressings.
PROVEN AGAINST MRSA
Micro-organisms from the wound are attracted to the activated carbon cloth, bound to the surface and destroyed
Activated carbon has naturally occurring van der Waals electrostatic forces that draw small gas and liquid molecules away from the wound, to the dressing, where they become trapped in micropores
Bacteria cells that are too big to enter the micropores, become trapped on the surface of Zorflex, away from the wound bed, and are deprived of nutrients which are adsorbed into the micropores
Electrostatic tension builds up in the trapped cells until the tension overcomes the tensile strength of the cell walls, at which time the cell walls rupture, destroying the micro-organisms
