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 providing added cushion to aid in patient comfort.
KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Inherently self-adhesive with the ability to absorb wound exudate.
The wound contact layer is laminated to a breathable polyurethane backed film.
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) and helps reduce dressing changes, provides increase wear time (up to 5 days) and reduces risk for maceration.
Can promote autolytic debridement of slough and necrotic tissue while promoting granulation.
Protects both the patients and healthcare professional from cross contamination. Keeps
bacteria and other contaminants away from the wound. Allows the patient to wash or shower.
Indicated for light to moderately exuding chronic and acute wounds. Suitable to use under compression bandaging. The dressing maybe used throughout the healing process on:
- Pressure ulcers
- Venous leg ulcers
- Diabetic ulcers
- Abrasions and lacerations
- Post-operative surgical sites
- Cavity wounds (as a secondary dressing)
