3M™ Tegaderm™ High Integrity and 3M™ Tegaderm™ High Gelling Alginate Dressings maintain a moist wound healing environment. More
Alginate wound dressings are non-woven, non-adhesive pads and ribbons composed of natural polysaccharide fibers or xerogel derived from seaweed. On contact with exudate these dressings form a moist gel through a process of ion exchange. They are soft and conformable, easy to pack, tuck or apply over irregular-shaped wounds. Indicated for wounds with moderate to heavy exudate, such as pressure ulcers, infected wounds, and venous insufficiency ulcers. Alginates generally require a secondary dressing.
