More often than not, unwrapping a bandage involves painfully removing copious amounts of body hair as well. Even worse, a gauze bandage could stick and disrupt the healing process of the wound. Luckily, telfa provides a safe and painless solution.
Telfa consists of a normal cotton bandage coated with polyethylene terephthalate. This substance prevents the bandage from adhering to the wound and disrupting the healing process. Yet, because of the substance’s perforation, the bandage still absorbs blood and other fluids from the wound.
