The 3M™ Tegaderm™ High Performance Foam Non-Adhesive Dressing is a non-adherent wound dressing that can be used as a primary or secondary dressing for low to highly exuding partial and full thickness wounds and under compression. The multi-layer construction of the foam dressing results in excellent ﬂuid management making it absorbent and breathable to reduce the risk of maceration. 3M’s innovative multi-layer technology absorbs and evaporates moisture to maintain an optimal wound healing environment.
3M™ Tegaderm™ High Performance Foam Non-Adhesive Dressing
Innovative layer technology provides high absorbency with breathability to reduce the risk of maceration.
Adapts to changing levels of exudate to maintain moisture balance for optimal wound healing.
1. Highly breathable film: protects the wound from strikethrough and adapts to changing levels of exudate to maintain the moisture balance for an optimal moist wound environment.
2. Moisture control layer: facilitates evaporation of moisture from the wound through the highly breathable adhesive film backing.
3. Superabsorbent layer: absorbs and retains moisture away from the wound, minimising backward moisture migration.
4. Soft absorbent foam layer: wicks moisture away from the skin and into the secondary layers and has minimal swell, which decreases the potential for disruption of healing tissue.
*In vitro testing shows that the transparent film provides a viral barrier from viruses 27nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage.
