Formerly known as 3M™ Tegasorb™ THIN Hydrocolloid Dressing, 3M™ Tegaderm™ Hydrocolloid Thin Dressing is very thin, yet highly absorbent. Ideal for the management of low to moderate exuding wounds.
For low to moderately exuding wounds choose 3M™ Tegaderm™ Hydrocolloid Thin Dressing. Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Thin dressing combines the excellent moisture vapour permeability of 3M™ Tegaderm™ Film Dressing with the absorbency and conformability of an advanced hydrocolloid. The dressing is transparent, allowing observation of the healing process. The layer of 3M™ Tegaderm™ Film Dressing covers the hydrocolloid and extends to a border on oval dressings. This gives additional security against dressing edge roll or leakage.
