3M foam silicone dressing for pressure sores or pressure ulcers

3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings. Impressively strong. Amazingly gentle.

Not all silicone foam wound dressings are created equal. Where others may fall short and fall off, 3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings deliver, providing impressive adhesion that’s strong yet gentle.

  • 3M invented gentle-to-skin medical adhesives more than 50 years ago, and we continue to innovate solutions that provide consistent adhesion with easy removal to help minimise the risk of Medical Adhesive-Related Skin Injury (MARSI). Because wound care starts with skin care.

    Significantly longer wear time​¹ plus gentle adhesion

    3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings offer significantly longer wear time than the leading competitive silicone foam wound dressing¹ while being gentle to the skin. Which may help save your facility time and money on unscheduled dressing changes.

    Thin, low-profile edge

    3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings are highly conformable and feature a thin, low-profile edge, helping to minimise the rolling and lifting that can impact adhesion and wear time.

  • Purple and white icon with multiple layers stacked on top of one another.
    Unique multi-layer design

    3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings have a unique multi-layer design that absorbs and evaporates moisture, helping to reduce the potential for skin maceration.

  • Purple and white icon that shows an outline of a clinician’s hand.
    Easy application

    3M™ Tegaderm™ Silicone Foam Dressings feature a patented spoke delivery system that enables easy application in challenging locations like the sacrum, for a more positive clinician experience.
