WATER-JEL is a water-based, water-soluble gel that draws the heat out of a burn while it relieves the pain, cools the skin, and protects against airborne contamination. By applying WATER-JEL as soon as possible, the heat of the burn is dissipated and helps prevent the heat from progressing deeper into the skin.
The gel consists of 96% water and has the same cooling effects as water, but because it is thick, it stays on the burn and doesn’t evaporate. WATER-JEL also contains a small amount of the natural extract Melaleuca Alternifolia, better known as tea tree oil. This oil has anti-bacterial properties to help prevent infection. WATER-JEL also contains thickening agents and preservatives to maintain the gel’s viscosity and efficacy and give it a 5-year shelf life.
WATER-JEL blankets are coated with the product and can be used to treat a burn over a large area. The largest of our blankets – 6’x 8′ – can be used to totally wrap a burn patient or as protection in fire rescue. The blankets can easily be carried in a durable plastic container.
