Custom Formulated Medical Grade Hydrocolloid Adhesives

Due to its absorbent and non-skin sensitizing characteristics. Hydrocolloid adhesives have unique performance characteristics allowing them to perform where other adhesives fail. Hydrocolloid formulations can be customized by Amparo Medical to meet your specific hydrocolloid product requirements.

Medical grade Hydrocolloid adhesive is ideal for surgical applications, medical device attachment, wound care, ostomy, and cosmetics. Hydrocolloid is a conformable, gel-like material that provides adhesion to the skin even in problematic areas of the body. Due to the occlusive nature of wound care hydrocolloids, moisture is captured beneath the dressing to promote healing. Hydrocolloid is Non-Skin sensitizing and does not traumatize the skin upon being removed. Most hydrocolloids are waterproof allowing patients to wear the adhesive for several days and allow for normal washing and bathing. The use of hydrocolloid adhesive provides many benefits.
