Frequently Asked Questions

WILL SILVRSTAT WOUND DRESSING GEL STING OR BURN WHEN APPLIED TO OPEN WOUNDS OR BURNS?

Nope.  It feels the same as water does when applied to the wound, but it will also soothe and cool the affected area.

WILL THE GEL STAIN MY SKIN OR CLOTHING?

Nope.  It is non-staining.

WILL THE GEL STICK TO BANDAGES OR CLOTHES?

Nope. Armor Gel is not sticky and absorbs quickly.  It will not cause bandages or clothes to stick to the wound.

WHAT SIZE TUBE IS IT AVAILABLE IN?

It can be purchased in a .05oz tube, 1.50z tube, and 4.0oz tube

ARE THERE ANY SCENTS OR DYES IN THE GEL?

Armor Gel is scent and dye free.

HOW SHOULD I APPLY THE GEL?

Liberally cover the affected area with Armor Gel using a clean applicator if available.

DO I NEED TO WRAP THE WOUND AFTER I APPLY THE GEL?

It is recommended that a bandage be used on top of Armor Gel, but it is not a requirement.  For example, Armor Gel works very well on sunburns, which are usually left uncovered.

IS THE GEL WATER RESISTANT?

The gel has very limited water resistance, and would need to be reapplied if exposed to a lot of water.

WHAT IF MY CHILD/DOG/CAT INGESTS THE GEL?

No problem.  Armor Gel is non-toxic and will not harm any people or animals that ingest it.

HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO APPLY?

It can last up to 3 days under a bandage.  For optimal results reapply it daily or each time the bandage is changed.

CAN THE GEL BE USED WITHOUT A BANDAGE?

If a wound or burn is left uncovered by a bandage, it is best to apply Armor Gel to the affected area a few times daily.
