Hydrocoll Thin

  • Code: 8835

  • Unit: 

Hydrocoll is a self-adherent absorbent hydrocolloid dressing with semi-permeable cover layer which is impermeable to organisms and water.  The hydrocolloids transform into a gel when in contact with wound exudate and form a moist environment which has a stimulating effect on granulation and epithelialization.
 
The thinner hydrocolloid dressing with the lower absorption capacity is used in preference during epithelization stage.
