Hydrocolloids provide an alternative to traditional wound dressings in stick-to-skin applications. They are popular because of their durability and fluid absorption; they cause little or no skin trauma. Matching the right hydrocolloid adhesive formulation and substrate for medical applications depends on a number of factors: short- or long-term skin contact; resistance to heat, moisture, and pressure; compatibility with sterilization; and fluid resistance. Fabrico can help you identify the important factors when choosing a hydrocolloid adhesive.
