Stasilon is a brand-name hemostatic woven textile manufactured by Entegrion, Inc. of Durham, North Carolina, USA. It is made from fibers of continuous filament fiberglass and bamboo yarn and used to accelerate clotting and stop bleeding from cuts and abrasions. Originally intended for military use, NATO and United States Navy reviews have reported its abilities to be unsuited to life-threatening arterial hemorrhaging but Stasilon is finding use in operating and burn victim treatment settings.
