Hydrocolloid Dressing

Our Skin-Tack™ Hydrocolloid Dressing is intended for superficial wounds, dry to lightly oozing dermal ulcers, and as a protective primary dressing. They provide a waterproof barrier over the wound which helps protect it from bacteria and viral contaminates. The dressing can be removed from the wound without causing damage to the healing tissues. The top of the dressing is smooth so as not to catch clothes or bedding. This helps cut down on painful friction. The Dressing is comfortable and flexible making it easy to mold and fit, even in difficult areas. The dressing has an adhesive border and can be cut to fit. The Hydrocolloid dressing gels when it comes into contact with light oozing to avoid leakage around the bandage. The extended wear time helps cut down on dressing changes, making these more economical. This square dressing can be cut into the size required

The dressing can be used in replace of normal plasters as it can be cut to the perfect size, and they keep the wound in the perfect moist environment to let the wound heal from the inside out, ensuring less risk of infection while continuing your normal daily activities, weather you have a cut from a knife or a bed sore the dressing has you covered, Literally.
