3M™ Tegaderm™ Hydrocolloid Thin Dressing

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.
 Product Benefits
  • Very thin and conformable
  • Provides improved exudate management
  • Available in oval and square shapes for different wound situations
  • Waterproof film cover protects against external contamination
  • Square dressings can be cut or shaped to fit body areas


 Indications for Use
  • Low to moderately exuding wounds, including pressure sores and leg ulcers
