3M Tegaderm Silicone Foam Border Dressing is an absorbent, breathable, wound dressing. 3M Tegaderm Silicone Foam Dressings feature an innovative, multi-layer design that wicks moisture away from the wound surface, and distributes and locks moisture on the back of the dressing, limiting backward migration and protecting periwound skin. As the dressing absorbs, user will see discoloration, which is completely normal. When the exudate spreads to the edges of the secondary layer, it’s time for a dressing change.
