The Persian word kaž or gaz derived in classical Arabic qazz or hazz, the etymological antecedent of the term gauze . This concept is used in our language to refer to a thin and clear fabric , which can be made with thread or silk.

It can be said that gauze is a kind of mesh which is composed of a certain amount of threads. Depending on the number of threads, the gauze will have more or less quality . The threads, in turn, can have different characteristics.

In the field of the textile industry, gauze is used for manufacture of various types of garments , and even scarves, tablecloths and curtains. It is a light and delicate fabric, widely used to create summer clothes (pants , skirts, skirts, tunics, etc.).

Chiffon is also very important in the field of medicine and the infirmary. It is an essential element in the first aid since it is used for cover wounds .

These gauze are sterilized or impregnated with some kind of substance that has therapeutic action. A usual procedure to prevent infections It consists of washing and disinfecting a wound and then covering it with gauze. In addition, a dressing or bandage is usually placed on said gauze.

This use of gauze in the medicinal plane is explained from the absorption capacity of the fabric, which also does not stick to the wound . In this way it is possible to protect the wounds in a simple way, contributing to the healing without risks.

With this objective, that is, for the protection of wounds against potential infections, the most used material since the creation of the gauze has always been the cotton . Two products that can be created with gauze to cover a damaged area are the compress and the bandage .

Compress means a thin cloth of cloth or gauze that bends more than once until a strip forms. Its use focuses on the containment of hemorrhages, the application of heat in an area with muscular problems and the protection of wounds. It is also used as a supplement when spreading certain medications on the skin.

Another use of the compress is exclusive to women, since it involves the absorption of menstrual flow, the bleeding that occurs every time an unfertilized egg is expelled from the ovary. In this case, the product is called towel sanitary.

The term bandage, on the other hand, is defined as a series of pieces of wool or linen that are joined and placed in the body as part of various procedures of first aid . The bandage is used to cover a part of the body that has been injured; Usually, it is necessary to keep it for a few days until the problem is solved.

Depending on the structure of the chiffon thread, we can distinguish the following four types:

* monofilament : It is the most used worldwide and is characterized by the uniformity it provides to the print;

* multifilament : it is a twisted of threads in which each of the braids acts as a thread of the previous type of gauze. It is used in large runs and its roughness It is considerable. Although its price is much higher than that of monofilament gauze, it has the disadvantage that one of its threads can break and block the screen;

* taffeta : it is woven on both sides with a transverse thread that is cut before going through the warp to have the exact measurement;

* twill : This fabric can be made by weaving twice below and once above or twice on each side.
