Formerly known as 3M™ Tegasorb™ Hydrocolloid Dressing, 3M™ Tegaderm™ Hydrocolloid Dressing is highly absorbent and conformable and is ideal for the management of moderately exuding wounds.
For moderately exuding wounds choose 3M™ Tegaderm™ Hydrocolloid Dressing. This advanced formulation hydrocolloid creates ideal conditions for optimum wound healing. The polysaccharide particles in the dressing swell, absorbing exudate and producing a soft gel. A layer of 3M™ Tegaderm™ Film Dressing covers the hydrocolloid, extending to a border on oval and sacral designs. This gives additional security against dressing edge roll or leakage and gives up to a complete week's wear time.
