Absorbent Cotton also known as Surgical Cotton or Cotton Wool is mainly used for medical purposes in hospitals, nursing homes, dispensaries etc., Because of high fluid absorbency power, it is better known as absorbent cotton. The absorbent cotton should be chemically inert and soft to give maximum protection and should not cause irritation. These properties can be achieved by manufacturing the product as per standard method of manufacture.
