Details
  • Easy application and removal
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Surface remains dry to touch
  • Maintains a moist wound environment for optimum wound healing
  • Absorbs and retains exudate in the dressing through a vertical wicking process to reduce the risk of maceration
  • Removes excess matrix metalloproteinases (MMP's) which can cause a delay in wound healing
  • Latex free to minimise the risk of irritation and sensitivity

3M™ Tegaderm™ Superabsorber Dressing is a sterile, single use superabsorber dressing designed specifically for use on highly exuding wounds.

Superabsorber dressing locks in exudate to help prevent moisture associated complications - even under compression. Can be used both as a primary and secondary dressing.

Suggested Applications

  • Indicated for use on highly exuding wounds including;
  • Leg ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Wet legs
