Wound Care > Hydrocolloids

Hydrocolloid wound dressings tend to be impermeable by bacteria and many other types of contaminates and provide a moist healing environment that permits the granulation of clean wounds and facilitates autolytic debridement of necrotic wounds. They are occlusive or semi-occlusive dressings composed of materials such as gelatin, pectin, and carboxymethylcellulose. Hydrocolloid dressings are manufactured in various shapes, sizes, adhesive properties, and delivery methods (such as wafers, pastes, and powders).
