Avant Gauze is Medline's standard non-woven dressing. Compared to traditional cotton gauze, Avant Gauze produces less lint and is less traumatic to fragile granulating wound tissue because it?s virtually non-adherent. It also has significantly faster wicking ability which promotes a healthier healing environment. Discover the perfect balance between strength and absorbency in this rayon/polyester blend gauze. Non-Sterile 2" x 2" 4-ply.
