The new dressing offers all the features of Tegaderm Transparent Film Dressings while adding new adhesive technology to increase moisture management performance which could lead to less frequent dressing changes.

Tegaderm Diamond Dressings will be available in the US as well as selected international markets later this month.

3M new products marketer Matt Fryxell said the highly breathable dressing is engineered with pressure-sensitive adhesive to conform to the skin’s irregular surface for a long, comfortable wear, even when environmental conditions have historically posed challenges for optimal dressing performance.
