Feracrylum is used as a hemostatic (to stop bleeding) and an anti-septic for the management of post-operative wounds, cuts, burns and abrasions. It is used during surgeries from incision to healing, typically as an adjunct to conventional hemostatic in capillary and vein oozing in several surgeries and in dental extractions and oral surgeries. Feracrylum is a polyacrylic polymer, is non allergic, soluble in water, and cannot be absorbed in the system.

Feracrylum has a three way action in wound care

It has antimicrobial activity against gram positive and gram negative bacteria and fungi and thus decreases the risk of wound infection.
Its hemostatic action fastens the process of clot formation and stops the bleeding by forming a biodegradable complex with albumin.
Its hygroscopic action promotes faster healing, helps in removing the dressing easiliy and promotes growth of granulation tissue.
