NU-DERM™ Hydrocolloid Dressings
NU-DERM™ Hydrocolloid Dressings are designed to help maintain a moist wound environment. There are three variants in the range, available in a variety of shapes and sizes. All dressings are waterproof and will remain in place during showering.
NU-DERM™ Border Hydrocolloid Wound Dressing
It is conformable, has a top layer of low-friction film, and has bevelled edges all around the product – the border itself is a continuation of the skin-friendly hydrocolloid adhesive material.
NU-DERM™ Standard Hydrocolloid Wound Dressing
It has a top layer of foam, rounded corners, and is uniform in thickness.
NU-DERM™ Thin Hydrocolloid Wound Dressing
The semi-transparent variance, which is conformable and has a top layer of low-friction film, allows close and easy monitoring of the wound bed without dressing removal.
NU-DERM™ Sacral Hydrocolloid Dressing
Is primarily indicated for the management of superficial dry or lightly exuding wounds.
NU-DERM Hydrocolloid Dressings are designed to help maintain a moist wound environment on non to moderately exuding wounds. NU-DERM Hydrocolloid Dressings help maintain a moist wound healing environment encouraging autolytic debridement, thus enabling granulation to proceed under optimum conditions.
NU-DERM™ Thin Hydrocolloid Dressing is primarily indicated for the management of superficial dry to lightly exuding wounds, postoperative wounds, and superficial wounds and abrasions; however it is also useful on small wounds towards the end of the healing phase.
- Dermal ulcers involving muscle, tendon and exposed bone.

The dressing material interacts with wound exudate to form a soft gel. Due to the matrix formulation of the hydrocolloid material, most of the gel is removed together with the dressing, resulting in little or no damage to the newly formed tissue.
The semi-transparent (Thin) variant is conformable and has a top layer of low-friction film, allowing close and easy monitoring of the wound bed without dressing removal.
