WATER-JEL Technologies is the world leader in emergency burn care products. Listed below are frequently asked questions covering our professional and consumer product lines.

What is Water-Jel?

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. By applying Water-Jel as soon as possible, the heat of the burn is dissipated, helping to prevent the heat from progressing deeper into the skin. The gel consists of 96% water and has the same cooling effects as water, but because it is thick, it stays on the burn and evaporates at a very slow rate. Water-Jel also contains a small amount of the natural extract Melaleuca alternifolia, better known as Tea Tree Oil. This has antibacterial activity to help prevent infection. Water-Jel also contains thickening agents and preservatives to maintain the gel’s viscosity and efficacy and give it a five-year shelf life.


Why choose Water-Jel?

Water-Jel is the leading brand of emergency first aid for burns.

Water-Jel Sterile Burn Dressings feature more gel in the dressings, which means they feel better, longer. There's plenty of gel in the dressing to cover burns with a thick layer of gel to cool and soothe the burn.

Water-Jel dressings come in six sizes, so a first responder will have the right product for the injury. The more gel, the better. Water-Jel is the only brand that uses a medical-grade pad that carries the gel and applies it liberally to the burn injury. Other brands use a foamlike sponge that absorbs and retains the gel, but does not release it as effectively onto the burn. Water-Jel's unique Face Mask facial dressing has precut eye, nose and mouth holes for easy and immediate one-step care.

Water-Jel Fire Blankets come in three sizes for large area burns. They are the only gel-soaked blankets available in either high-visibility orange canisters (with an optional wall bracket) or in large foil pouches. Water-Jel Fire Blankets and Burn Dressings have a five-year expiration date from date of manufacture, so when people invest in Water-Jel products, they know when they can best be used and when they should be replaced. There's no guessing and no taking chances with an old product.

Water-Jel is the only brand that offers two topical cooling gels and a unique topical gel specifically for sunburns.

Burn Jel cools burns to soothe the pain and also contains pain-relieving lidocaine. Lidocaine is a commonly used anesthetic found in many over-the-counter pain-relieving products. Cool Jel has a similar formula to Burn Jel, without lidocaine. UnBurn is for sunburns. It contains lidocaine and also moisturizing vitamin E.


What are the active ingredients in Water-Jel?

Water-Jel Burn Dressings and Fire Blankets do not contain any active ingredients; they are considered Class I Medical Devices.

Burn Jel, Burn Jel Plus and UnBurn contain lidocaine, which is found in many over-the-counter topical pain relievers. Cool Jel uses a similar gel formula to Burn Jel and UnBurn, but does not contain any active ingredient.


Why do people need Water-Jel burn care products?

Water-Jel meets the following safety needs within most companies, organizations and homes:

Risk Management—lower the risk of serious injury and liability
Employee Productivity—improve productivity, care and goodwill to keep employees on the job
Workers' Compensation—lower employees’ time off due to injury
EMS—provide pain relief and reduce the need for narcotics
Family Safety—at-home, first aid response to minor burns and burn emergencies


Which Water-Jel product should I use or have on hand?

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 and Cool Jel are intended for minor burns. UnBurn was created specifically for the relief of sunburn pain, and contains vitamin E to help moisturize the skin.


Can Water-Jel be used on both thermal and chemical burns?

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.


Does Water-Jel freeze, and will it get ruined from low or high temperatures?

Water-Jel freezes at 5°F but can be used when thawed at ambient temperatures. Similarly, Water-Jel shouldn't be stored at temperatures in excess of 130°F, but it will not harm the gel, blanket or dressing.


Why use Water-Jel if water is available?

Water-Jel Is Portable—Water-Jel is portable, so you can apply it to a burn, wrap it lightly and go back to work or home while Water-Jel continues cooling the burn and relieving the pain. It's the only way to treat burns when on a jobsite where water is not readily available.

Water-Jel Provides Continuous Pain Relief and Cooling—Water-Jel provides cool, soothing relief that can be reapplied if necessary.

Water-Jel Doesn't Evaporate—Water-Jel doesn't quickly evaporate like sterile water does, so it minimizes the risk of overcooling the patient, even when treating large burns. Burn sheets or dry dressings soaked with sterile water quickly evaporate, causing the pain to come back and requiring the rewetting of the sheet or dressings, which can cause excessive cooling and even hypothermia.

Water-Jel Is Easy to Apply—For burns large and small. Treating victims of large area and serious burns with sterile water is difficult to manage. With Water-Jel, they are easy to manage. Water-Jel Fire Blankets and Burn Dressings help first responders quickly care for large area burn injuries in one easy step.

Water-Jel Helps Prevent Infection—Studies have shown that because Water-Jel covers the burn and contains Melaleuca alternifolia, better known as Tea Tree Oil, it helps prevent infection.

Water-Jel Has a Long Shelf Life—Water-Jel is naturally bacteriostatic with anti-bacterial activity to help prevent bacterial growth.
