Henkel Adhesives for Wound Dressings

Wound dressings: Excellent adhesion for sensitive skin areas

Wound dressings encompass materials used for the covering and protection of a wound.  This may include the use of a sterile pad in applications such as island or other surgical dressings meant to absorb, exudate, repel bacteria, and prevent infection.  Applications also include securing an IV or catheter to the patient’s skin.
