Hydrocolloids

Tegaderm Hydrocollid Thin

Tegaderm Hydrocollid Thin

Very thin, absorbent, hydrocolloid dressing with Tegaderm Film backing layer. In oval shapes, this extends to form an adhesive border. Conformable and waterproof. Transparent, allowing for wound observation. Maintains odour control and contains no pectin, gelatine or any other animal derivatives.

Tegaderm Hydrocolloid

Tegaderm Hydrocolloid

An advanced, highly absorbent, conformable, hydrocolloid dressing with Tegaderm Film backing layer. Maintains odour control and contains no pectin, gelatine or any other animal derivatives.

ActivHeal Hydrocolloid

ActivHeal Hydrocolloid

Consists of a thin layer of hydrocolloid laminated to a highly breathable film. Contains a mixture of synthetic polymers and hydrophilic powders, with a high moisture vapour transmission rate film backing. Does not contain animal-derived ingredients.

ActivHeal Hydrocolloid Foam Backed

ActivHeal Hydrocolloid Foam Backed

Consists of a layer of hydrocolloid laminated to a breathable film, and a polyurethane foam backing. Does not contain animal-derived ingredients.

BeneHold Bordered

BeneHold Bordered

Consists of a self-adherent hydrocolloid wound contact layer and a smooth low-friction transparent polyurethane film. Features odour-control technology. The hydrocolloid border helps avoid edge lift and contains an additional hydrocolloid layer for maximum absorption.

BeneHold TASA

BeneHold TASA

Featuring Vancives's thin Absorbent Skin Adhesive technology, it consists of an absorbent acrylic wound contact layer and a smooth low-friction transparent polyurethane film.

Comfeel Plus

Comfeel Plus

Absorbent hydrocolloid dressing with added alginate for absorption, a vapour-permeable film backing and bevelled edge to reduce rucking. Free from animal products. 1cm grid printed on backing to aid wound measurement.

Comfeel Plus Contour

Comfeel Plus Contour

Absorbent hydrocolloid dressing with added alginate for absorption, a vapour-permeable film backing and a bevelled edge to reduce rucking. Free from animal products. 1cm mapping grid to aid wound measurement and change indicator printed on backing. Shaped for use on difficult-to-dress areas, such as elbows, heels and pressure ulcers.

Comfeel Plus Pressure Relief

Comfeel Plus Pressure Relief

Hydrocolloid-based dressing pad covered with 6mm-thick foam in 3 concentric rings, which can be removed to match the size of the pressure ulcer beneath. Also contains alginate for exudate absorption and a vapour-permeable backing, with adhesive border.

Comfeel Plus Transparent

Comfeel Plus Transparent

Absorbent, transparent hydrocolloid dressing with a vapour-permeable film backing and bevelled edge to reduce rucking. Free from animal products. 1cm mapping grid to aid wound measurement and change indicator printed on the backing.

DuoDERM Extra Thin

DuoDERM Extra Thin

Sterile, thin hydrocolloid dressing. The adhesive layer contains elastomeric polymers which enhance the dressing’s ability to contain wound exudate by forming a cohesive gel.

DuoDERM Signal

DuoDERM Signal

An adhesive, bordered hydrocolloid dressing. An indicator helps to determine when to change the dressing. The adhesive layer forms a cohesive gel when in contact with wound exudate.

Granuflex

Granuflex

Adhesive hydrocolloid dressing consisting of an inner layer of hydrocolloid within an adhesive polymer matrix and an outer layer of polyurethane foam. The adhesive layer forms a cohesive gel on contact with exudate.

Granuflex Bordered

Granuflex Bordered

Hydrocolloid dressing with an adhesive foam border. Consists of an inner layer of hydrocolloids within an adhesive polymer matrix and an outer layer or polyurethane foam. The matrix layer forms a cohesive gel on contact with exudate.

Hydrocoll Basic

Hydrocoll Basic

Gelatin-free hydrocolloid dressing with foam backing to provide extra cushioning.

Hydrocoll Border

Hydrocoll Border

Gelatin-free hydrocolloid dressing with vapour-permeable film backing and adhesive border with bevelled edge. Concave version shaped for hard-to-dress areas.

Hydrocoll Thin

Hydrocoll Thin

Thin, transparent, gelatin-free hydrocolloid sheet with vapour-permeable film backing.

Nu-Derm Hydrocolloid Border

Nu-Derm Hydrocolloid Border

Hydrocolloid wound contact layer with adhesive border. The top layer is a semi-permeable polyurethane film.

Nu-Derm Thin

Nu-Derm Thin

Thin hydrocolloid dressing without an adhesive border.

Lomatuell Pro

Lomatuell Pro

Gel-forming wound contact net. Consists of a wide mesh tulle and a coating compound made from petroleum jelly and hydrocolloid. The hydrocolloid particles gel when in contact with wound exudate while the Vaseline moisturisers dry wound areas and the wound edge. The open mesh structure of the tulle promotes transfer of excess exudate to a secondary dressing. Can be cut to size and applied on either side.

Exuderm Satin

Exuderm Satin

Occlusive hydrocolloid dressing whose low profile, tapered edge and smooth satin backing are low friction for longer wear.

Exuderm Satin LP

Exuderm Satin LP

Thin (low profie) hydrocolloid wound dressing that provides a protective, translucent barrier and allows wound obervation. The tapered edge and smooth satin backing are low friction for longer wear.

Salts Mouldable Seals

Salts Mouldable Seals

Mouldable hydrocolloid seals. Range includes seals with extracts of aloe vera (Salts Mouldable Seals with Aloe).
