Hydrocolloid Adhesive

About Hydrocolloid Adhesive

Hydrocolloid adhesive is medical-grade adhesive ideal for surgical applications, wound care, ostomy, and medical device attachment. 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 adhesive 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 many benefits of hydrocolloid adhesives include:

  • Hydrocolloid is Highly absorbent
  • Forms an Occlusive Barrier
  • Absorbs high amounts of oils, puss, and other exudate.
  • Facilitates autolytic debridement
  • Conformable
  • Sticks Well & Removes Easily

Hydrocolld adhesive does not irritate skin

Hydrocolloid adhesives are solvent free, absorbent, and hypoallergenic. Absorption prevents skin irritation by removing dead skin cells, perspiration, and oils that would otherwise remain trapped between the skin and adhesive, preventing maceration.

Hydrocolloid works well for medical device attachment

Hydrocolloid sticks well to the skin and removes easily. Hydrocolloid adhesives have high shear, high tensile, and low peel properties. Amparo Medical’s extended wear formulations can attach a medical device for up to 2-weeks.
