3M™ Tegaderm™ Hydrocolloid Dressing maintains an optimal moist wound environment which has been shown to enhance healing. More
Hydrocolloid wound dressings are wafers, powders or pastes composed of gelatin, pectin or carboxymethylcellulose. Absorption capability depends on thickness and composition. Wafers are self-adhering and available with or without an adhesive border and in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Useful on areas that require contouring, such as heels and sacral ulcers. Powders and pastes require a secondary dressing. Indicated for partial- and full-thickness wounds with or without necrotic tissue.
