Our Sterile Gauze Roll Bandages are soft and comfortable yet strong, durable, and convenient. They have loose threads so they are comfortable to wear, yet with light compression can be used as a primary bandage, or as a secondary bandage holding a gauze pad in place without slipping.
Non-Sterile Gauze Roll Bandages are considered a "utility" bandage in that they can be used as a primary bandage or as a secondary wound dressing. They are particularly useful in burn care application. One can use a non-sterile gauze roll to hold a wound gauze pad in place, using slight compression to keep it from slipping, or, if need be, as the primary wound dressing because it is a light and airy non-stick roll allowing the burns to breath, yet will protect against the elements.
