The topical powder has passed all FDA required safety tests and has been the subject of numerous clinical studies – in which all concluded that the powder effectively stopped bleeding.
Powder + Pressure = Instant Scab.
WoundSeal® Powder is composed of a hydrophilic, or water-loving, polymer and potassium ferrate.
When the powder is poured onto a bleeding wound, the hydrophilic polymer instantly dehydrates the blood by absorbing only the plasma or liquid portion of the blood stacking the blood solids beneath the powder. Simultaneously, the potassium ferrate dissolves, releasing iron that agglomerates (binds together) the blood solids to create an occlusive seal.
