Hydrocolloid Adhesives for Device Attachment

Hydrocolloid for Medical Attachment & Catheter Securement Devices

Amparo® Hydrocolloid sticks well & removes easily, while being gentle to delicate skin, with formulations available to adhere devices for up to 2 weeks.

Hydrocolloid is non-skin sensitizing and can be used to repetitively attach a device to the same location without irritation.
Due to the absorbent nature of hydrocolloid, dead skin cells, oils and sweat that typically cause standard adhesives to fail are absorbed, extending the number of days the device will remain attached.
Benefits Include: 
  • Sticks Well / Removes Easily
  • Non Skin Sensitizing
  • Good for Repetitive Use in Same Location
  • Up to 2-week device attachment
  • Conformable
  • Absorbent
  • Provides cushioning for comfort
  • Works well with catheter securment devices


Amparo® Hydrocolloid can repetitively adhere a CGM to the same location on the body without causing irritation.

Amparo® Hydrocolloid will provide secure fixation of your securement device without the use of skin preparation and will not cause skin irritation.

Amparo® Hydrocolloid can extend the wear time of your electrodes and is compatible with hydrogels.
