    Catrix Wound Dressing cartilage powder is a collagen based product. The particles are composed of collagen macro-molecular chains of cross-linked collagen, which is large enough to allow substances with a molecular weight of 1,000 to 5,000 enter the particles less freely, while those substances with large molecular weights remain in the interspaces between the particles. Each gram of wound dressing powder can absorb appoximately 3-4ml of fluid, due to its hydrophilic characteristics.
