Burn wounds

Cerdak ceramic wound dressing improves the healing process of burn wounds by:

  • Infection control 
  • Continuous wound cleansing
  • Quality granulation tissue
  • Regeneration of tissue
  • Less scar formation
  • Less contraction


  • Burn wounds should be cooled down in cold water for two to three hours. 
  • Cerdak can be used for all degrees of burn, however, third degree burns should first receive surgical treatment to remove eschar (incinerated, dead tissue). Once the 3rd degree burn wound has been cleaned, Cerdak can be applied. 
  • Clean and debride wound.
  • Place the shiny (non-stick) side against the wound.
  • Cover the entire surface of the wound with the Cerdak dressing.
  • Replace the dressing when 50-70% discoloration is visible (ceramic  becomes saturated).
  • Frequency of dressing changes will be determined by the amount of  moisture produced by the wound.
  • Generally, no cleansing of the wound is necessary when changing  the dressing.
  • Burn wounds tend to stick to any dressing, in which case a layer of  silicone net or paraffin gauze can be used as interface between Cerdak  and the wound surface.
