Product Description

Hydrocoll is a sterile, self-adhesive absorbent hydrocolloid wound dressing consisting of a wound contact layer of carboxymethyl cellulose particles contained within an adhesive polymer matrix. The outer layer is a semi permeable, bacteria and waterproof polyurethane film. On contact with the wound, Hydrocoll takes up wound exudate creating a gel. This gel provides an environment suitable for autolytic debridement, protection of granulation tissue and management of wounds of various aetiologies. Excess exudate is trapped in the upper part of the dressing and forms a blister visible on the outer layer.

Hydrocoll is flexible and conformable with high capacity absorbency. It absorbs and retains exudate, while maintaining an adequate moisture balance. Hydrocoll features bevelled edges for secure adhesion to the surrounding skin. Its low profile resists roll off. The frequency of dressing change will depend on the wound. Hydrocoll should be removed when there is visible discolouration of the dressing and blister formation is about the size of the wound, but can remain on the wound for 4-5 days.

  • Wounds with high exudate
  • Infected wounds
  • Not for use over bone or tendon
