Non-woven gauze is usually made from polyester, rayon, nylon, or a combination of these. The fibers in non-woven gauze are more condensed, and designed to allow exudate to seep into a secondary dressing. They are as breathable as standard gauze bandages, but able to wick moisture away from the wound at a quicker rate. Non-woven gauze doesn’t leave behind as much lint as other gauze types. This gauze is excellent for wounds that require packing, cleansing, or debridement. Read More...

Benefits of Non-Woven Gauze
There are multiple benefits to using non-woven gauze over standard gauze. The following are just a few reasons why non-woven gauze may be the best option for you!
Non-woven gauze has the ability to absorb exudate, and also to pass it through to a secondary dressing, thus preventing it from pooling in the gauze itself and possibly indirectly causing infection.
Reduction of Lint
Non-woven gauze bandages are less likely to get lint into the wound. If lint does get into the wound, it can cause infection. Using a non-woven gauze bandage can therefore help prevent infection from occurring, and hence reduce the likelihood of certain complications.
Stronger Wicking Capacity
These bandages have a stronger capability when it comes to wicking drainage away from the wound. This ensures that drainage doesn’t sit on the wound as long, and allows for faster healing to take place.
Non-Adherent & Flexible
Since non-woven bandages are non-adherent, they’re not likely to cause trauma to the wound. This type of gauze is flexible, so it can be used for wounds or joints.
You may have questions about non-woven gauze bandages that you’re wondering about, but not to worry - we have the answers for you! Below, you’ll find replies to commonly asked queries about non-woven gauze.
What’s the difference between woven gauze and non-woven gauze?
Woven gauze is the more standard style of gauze - it’s less tightly woven, and created from cotton. Non-woven gauze, in contrast, has a tighter weave. It’s made from synthetic materials (generally poly, rayon or a combination of the two) and is softer, stronger, and more absorbent than woven gauze. Non-woven gauze also is less likely to leave behind residue in the wound bed.
What sizes do non-woven gauze sponges come in?
Non-woven gauze comes in sizes 2”x2”, 3”x3”, and 4”x4” on AvaCare Medical. The most common option is 4x4 non woven gauze, followed by 2x2 non woven gauze.
What’s the difference between a non-woven gauze sponge and a non-woven gauze pad?
There isn’t really a difference; people are often asking us the difference between the two, but they’re really both the same. Some companies will label one piece of gauze as a ‘pad,’ and a pack of several together as gauze ‘sponges.’
