Our hydrocolloid dressings consist of a blend of synthetic polymers and hydrophilic powders which form a gel on contact with wound exudate promoting a moist wound environment. The foam-backed version has a polyurethane foam backing provides added cushion to aid in patient comfort.
CONFORMABLE HYDROCOLLOID ADHESIVE Inherently self-adhesive with the ability to absorb wound exudate.
BREATHABLE OUTER FILM The wound contact layer is laminated to a breathable polyurethane backed film.
EXCELLENT FLUID HANDLING The breathable film allows moisture to be transported from the wound (Film Backed = 5.6 g/100 cm2/24 hr; Foam Backed = 5.3 g/100 cm2/24 hr). Helps to reduce dressing changes and provide increased wear time (up to 5 days).
DEBRIDEMENT Can promote autolytic debridement of slough and necrotic tissue while promoting granulation.
WATERPROOF AND BACTERIAL BARRIER Protects from cross-contamination. Keeps bacteria and other contaminants away from the wound. Allows the patient to wash or shower.
