3M™ Inadine™ (PVP-I) Non Adherent Dressing consists of a low adherent knitted viscose fabric impregnated with a polyethylene glycol (PEG) base containing 10% Povidone Iodine equivalent to 1.0% available iodine.

Inadine Dressing is designed to protect wounds even when they are infected, providing long-lasting antimicrobial effect against bacteria, myocobacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses1, including resistant species such as MRSA.2,3 Inadine Dressing minimizes adherence to the wound bed, therefore reducing the risk of damage to the granulation tissue at dressing removal4, and in clinical practice has been shown to reduce pain for patients.5,6
