Three different kinds are available:
Tubiton is made from 100% unbleached cotton and contains natural oils that help to make it water-repellent.
Tubinette is made from 100% rayon and is intended for use where dressings have to be changed frequently.
Tubegauz is made from 100% bleached cotton and is recommended for use where natural fibres are preferred. Surgical stockinettes hold dressings securely and comfortably in place, without constriction or compression. The tubular construction makes application quick and easy, particularly when using a tubular bandage applicator. The range of sizes available makes it possible to retain a dressing on any part of the body. The convenience and low cost of stockinettes make them highly cost-effective.
