GelMax® powder efficacy in shape of a pad
In hospitals and laboratory, fluids and liquids may be contaminated. Therefore, liquids may be hazardous to handle manually, and its transferring and disposal are calling for serious accident. Thus, this needs a safer method.
GelMax® powder is capable of absorbing and gelling liquids as urine and body fluids. Due to its super-absorbent crystals, the gelling process takes place at the first contact with the liquid by forming a compact amalgam, whilst slowing the transformation of urea into ammonia, the molecule responsible for odors. The physical isolation thus created by the gelatinous mass obtained will limit the risk of dispersion of liquid and germs.
The GelMax® powder is incorporated into the structure of a cellulose pad. The process of absorption and gelification begins on contact with liquids. The pad will turn into a gel fluids upon first contact.
GelMax® pad may be placed in a collection container or waste container for a simple and safe utilisation. It may also be used to increase the absorption capacity of CareBag® bags if necessary.
