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:

  • Low adherent perforated film 
  • Highly absorbent cotton/acrylic pad 
  • Hydrophobic backing layer


Low adherent perforated film

  • Allows for rapid drainage of exudate, reducing trauma to healing tissue
