    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
