This Transparent Dressing is breathable, allowing oxygen and moisture vapor exchange. The Transparent Film Dressing is waterproof and impermeable to liquids, bacteria, and viruses. An intact dressing protects the site from outside contamination. Laboratory testing has proven Tegaderm is a barrier against HIV-1 and HBV while the dressings remain intact without leakage.

Tegaderm Transparent film dressings are designed for protecting skin and wound sites. The Frame Style Dressing allows customization of shape and size to fit any site. Unique sacral shape is designed for challenging and difficult-to-dress areas. This film dressing is a breathable barrier that keeps liquids, bacteria and other contaminates out while allowing the skin to function normally. The dressing serves also as a waterproof, bacterial and viral barrier to outside contaminants, allowing the patient to shower.

Great product
This product is working very well at keeping dirt out and the wound sterile. Will continue to use your services.
Very pleased
My wife uses 3 to 4 Tagaderm covers each week. When I made the switch from Bioclusive to Tagaderm, I received the new covers 2 days after the order was placed. I was amazed to received them so quickly. And as far as the quality ot Tagaderm? We are very pleased with the ease of application! Better than Bioclusive
