3M Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Thin Dressing is a sterile dressing which consists of a hypoallergenic, hydrocolloid adhesive with an outer clear adhesive cover film impermeable to liquids, bacteria, and viruses. It combines the excellent moisture vapor permeability of transparent dressing with the absorbency and conformability of a unique hydrocolloid adhesive. 

Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Thin Dressing Highlights:

  • Water resistant film border adheres firmly 
  • May be worn up to 7 days 
  • Easy to apply 
  • Conformable dressing

Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Thin Dressing Features


  • Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressings are available in three convenient shapes — oval, sacral and square.
  • Oval and sacral shapes have a film border. The film border eliminates the need for tape and makes dressing application easier.
  • Ovals and squares are also available in a thin dressing design.
  • 3M Tegaderm Thin Hydrocolloid Dressings provide excellent patient comfort, dressing adherence and wound management.
  • The flexible, conformable, low-profile dressings are comfortable because there is less bulk to catch on bed linens.
  • With film dressing border, there is less likelihood of edge lift. Water resistance allows the patient to shower or to have a bed bath.
  • Proven up to 7 day wear time provides undisturbed moist wound environment which has been shown to enhance healing
  • Smooth outer surface helps reduce the risk of shear and friction
  • Adhesive dressings continue to adhere and protect the wound in the presence of incontinence
  • Long wear time means less dressing changes and potentially lower costs

Benefits of 3M Tegaderm Dressings:

  • Hydrocolloid adhesive absorbs exudate without breaking down or leaving residue in the wound for easier dressing application
  • Tegaderm Dressing ensures an optimal moist wound healing environment which has been shown to enhance healing
  • Smooth outer surface helps protect skin from shearing caused by friction, may be used to help prevent damage to intact skin
  • Outer film barrier protects the wound and surrounding skin from contaminants, body fluids, bacteria and viruses
  • Provides a consistently high moisture vapor transmission to reduce the potential for periwound skin maceration

What to buy with 3M Hydrocolloid Thin Dressing

Clinically Proven for Higher Absorbency:

Three separate lots (6 replicates for each lot) of 3M Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressing and DuoDERM CGF Dressing were tested for absorbency. Results were recorded as grams of solution absorbed per gram of dressing material. Absorbency was measured at 2, 4, 24 and 48 hours. The results from the absorbency testing indicate that Tegaderm Hydrocolloid Dressing had a statistically significant higher mean absorbency than DuoDERM CGF Dressing at every time point (p<0.0001). The following graph displays the mean absorbency across time.
