What are Hydrocolloids?

A hydrocolloid is a type of medical adhesive that contains gel-forming agents. In our products, we combine elastomers and adhesives and apply them to a polyurethane foam or film carrier to form an absorbent, self-adhesive, waterproof bandage or dressing for wound care. Although hydrocolloid dressings are advanced medical devices used in hospitals to treat patients with chronic wounds, hydrocolloid bandages are available to consumers for their everyday foot care needs (e.g. blisters and corns), mild burns, minor cuts, and abrasions, providing a superior wound care experience.

EuroMed’s proprietary hydrocolloid bandages and dressings are skin-friendly dual-layered medical devices made of a skin-like, smooth top layer and absorbent adhesive bottom layer. Our bordered products feature a patented tapered edge that prevents roll-up and bunching while sealing out contaminants.

How Do Hydrocolloids Work?

Our consumer bandages and professional dressings work with the body to promote an optimal moist wound healing environment. The adhesive is applied directly to the non-infected wound. As the adhesive layer interacts with wound fluid, it forms a soft gel. Upon removal, most of the gel matrix is removed with the hydrocolloid bandages or dressings, resulting in little or no damage to the newly-formed tissue. Hydrocolloid bandages and dressings can remain in place for days, even while showering.
