Complete Burn Solutions
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.

The ideal storage temperature for Water-Jel is -5° to +35° Celsius. Water-Jel freezes at -15°C but can be used when thawed at ambient temperatures. Similarly, Water-Jel shouldn't be stored at temperatures in excess of 55°C, but it will not harm the gel, blanket or dressing.

Because we want to ensure the high quality of our products at all times, they have undergone stability testing to ensure the effectiveness for a given length of time. The expiration date indicates that the product, if not opened, will be stable and effective until that date.

When produced, Burn Jel, has a three-year shelf life from the date of manufacture. The expiration date will be noted on the packaging near the lot number. Water-Jel Sterile Burn Dressings and Fire Blankets have a five-year shelf life from the date of manufacture, and the expiration date can be found on the label near the lot number. If your Water-Jel product has expired, then it should be discarded or used for training and replaced. The blanket canisters can be placed in any local recycling program. The gel, since it is nontoxic, can be disposed of in the regular trash. No special handling is required.

Yes, but they must be handled differently. The first principle in treating a thermal burn is to put out the fire and cool the burn wound to stop the burning process; if the victim is unconscious, the presence of a pulse and airway should be established early on. A Water-Jel blanket puts out the fire and cools the burn without removing the clothing, and the victim can be transported in the blanket. In contrast, the first principle in chemical burns is to remove the offending agent with copious and continued irrigation with water or saline. Generally, no attempt should be made to neutralize the chemical agent since that will waste precious time. The clothing must be removed completely and quickly in a chemical burn, as clothing serves as a reservoir for the offending agent. Also check the chemical's MSDS. Once the chemical agent has been flushed thoroughly, Water-Jel can be used to provide pain relief and protection.

Sterile Burn Dressings and Fire Blankets are intended for any burns—minor burns, serious burns and burns that cover a large area of the body. Burn Jel is intended for minor burns. 

Water-Jel contains Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia) as a bacteriological barrier to protect the wound against further contamination.

Tea tree is native to Australia, where it was a traditional medicine for the Aboriginal people, particularly for the Bundjalung tribe. 

Tea tree oil has anaesthetic, anti-bacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. As such, it is valuable as a first aid treatment for a range of small complaints. It makes an excellent topical oil to prevent infections and accelerate the healing of small cuts and grazes, and bruises. It removes the itch and irritation caused by insect bites.

Burn Jel and Burn Jel Plus contain lidocaine, which is found in many over-the-counter topical pain relievers.

Water-Jel sterile burn dressings and fire blankets are considered class IIb Medical Device and therefore have no active ingredient.

Water-Jel burn dressings utilise a non-woven carrier, pre-saturated with cooling clear gel - together they conform to the burn injury site as they cool and soothe the pain. The excess heat is absorbed and dissipated throughout the gel and released to the air as the skin temperature is stabilised. Water-Jel burn dressings cover and protect burn injuries to help prevent infection.

Water-Jel’s new crystal clear gel consists of 97% water and contains hyaluronic acid (already naturally occurring in the body), proven to offer superior hydration benefits to the skin. The clear gel allows for visual assessment at any time and does not interfere with debridement or contribute to hypothermia.
