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 the process of ion exchange. They are soft and conformable, easy to pack, tuck or apply over irregularly shaped wounds. Indicated when there is moderate to heavy exudate, such as for pressure injuries, infected wounds and venous insufficiency ulcers. Alginates generally require a secondary dressing.
