Gauze Bandage Rolls Market Overview
Gauze bandage rolls are woven cotton of plain weave material ideally used to provide support dressings. Gauze bandage rolls are categorized on the basis of its purity standards, thread counts, sterility and construction process. The gauze is a material in a gauze bandage roll, which is commonly used for wound and surgical dressings. These materials are often identified by their fiber length (tensile strength), weight (grams per square meter), mesh (threads per inch) and absorbency in some specific applications.
For instance, in certain surgical procedures, strong woven gauze bandage rolls are required as they provide exponential strength and enhanced protection. In addition to that some types of dressings may require loose woven gauze bandage rolls for improved drainage and absorbency. Majority of gauze bandage rolls are made from cotton-based materials, and some of them are woven with other materials (synthetic fibres (rayon), plastic film coatings) along with cotton.
On the basis of specialty application, gauze bandage rolls are constructed from different materials (oxidized cellulose) in which gauze bandage rolls are chemically treated to make them more absorbable and haemostatic. Gauze bandage rolls are available in various sizes and shapes and are applied to the affected part in order to offer compression, prevent motion, and absorb secretion. Gauze bandage rolls work by holding the dressing in intact place by offering support and compression. High-bulk gauze bandage rolls are made of six or more layers of gauze and are constructed to offer further protective padding in dressing application.
Gauze bandage rolls serve various advantages, such as excellent drainage and absorbability, and ease in usability in topical pharmaceuticals, and certain disadvantages such as the need of frequent changing, and shredding and adhering of material to the affected areas.
Regulation of Gauze Bandage Rolls
Gauze bandage rolls for dressings and other applications are intended for the use in medical, surgical, veterinary and dental purposes. These products are supplied by direct sales to end-use customers including, hospitals, private person, or other sectors. Various guidelines have been implemented by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA), National Formulary (NF), and United States Pharmacopeia (USP) for determining strength, quality, and purity of gauze bandage rolls, along with its packaging and labelling.
Both surgical as well as medical dressings that use gauze bandage rolls must fall in the criteria of USP, which includes absorbency, material content, width, weight, thread count, solubility, adhesive strength, fiber length, tensile strength, alcohol soluble dyes, acidity or alkalinity, packaging, labelling, and storage, to help in classification of these gauze bandage rolls.
