3M invented gentle-to-skin medical adhesives more than 50 years ago, and we continue to innovate solutions that provide consistent adhesion with easy removal to help minimise the risk of Medical Adhesive-Related Skin Injury (MARSI)2. Because wound care starts with skin care.
Not all silicone foam dressings are created equal. Where others may fall short and fall off, 3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings deliver, providing impressive adhesion that’s strong yet gentle¹
The innovation behind 3M’s silicone adhesive is the ability to attach to both dry and moist skin to provide a secure environment for wound healing, whilst also being gentle and atraumatic when it comes to dressing removal. Poor adhesion can often lead to poor fluid management (damage to peri-wound area), premature dressing changes and risk of infection – all impacting the clinical and cost-effectiveness of a foam dressing.
3M Solution: 3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings offer significantly longer wear time than the leading competitive silicone foam dressing3 while being gentle to the skin. Which may help save your facility time and money on unscheduled dressing changes.
3M Solution: 3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings are highly conformable and feature a thin, low-profile edge, helping to minimise the rolling and lifting that can impact adhesion and wear time3,4.
3M Solution: 3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings have a unique multi-layer design that absorbs and evaporates moisture, helping to reduce the potential for skin maceration5,6.
3M Solution: 3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings feature a patented spoke delivery system that enables easy application in challenging locations like the sacrum, for a more positive clinician experience5.
At 3M, we support your creativity and expertise with a comprehensive portfolio of clinically proven solutions and unparalleled training and support. This is where science meets art.
