Calcium alginate powder for wound dressing material, calcium alginate for food
Calcium alginate is a highly absorbent, biodegradable alginate dressing derived from seaweed. Alginate dressings maintain a physiologically moist microenvironment that promotes healing and the formation of granulation tissue.
Calcium alginate use:
Calcium alginate is the insoluble form of alginate with high swelling capacity. It can be woven to produce pliable patches or ribbons for filling cavity or tunneling wounds.
Calcium alginate has the potential to absorb 15–20 times more than its initial weight, and its nonadhesive surface makes it possible to be easily removed from the wound site.
Calcium alginate is a water-insoluble, gelatinous, cream-coloured substance that can be created through the addition of aqueous calcium chloride to aqueous sodium alginate. Calcium alginate is also used for entrapment of enzymes and forming artificial seeds in plant tissue culture.
