3M™ Tegaderm™ Transparent Film Dressing Frame Style is a sterile, vapour permeable transparent film dressing

Tegaderm® is a transparent film dressing that is used to cover and protect catheter sites and wounds. It maintains a healing environment for the wound. The comfortable dressing flexes with skin to offer great patient comfort. The picture frame design enables one-handed application of the dressing. The dressing has a breathable, transparent film and allows the exchange of moisture and oxygen. It is made with a hypoallergenic adhesive that doesn’t contain any natural rubber latex and is gentle on the skin. The dressing is sterile and waterproof. It also acts as a viral and bacterial barrier to protect getting contaminated from the outside. The transparency allows the monitoring of I.V. sites without the removal of the dressing. Tegaderm dressing is available in a wide range of sizes and variants.


  • Waterproof, sterile barrier: protects the I.V. site or wound from external contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, blood and body fluids – in vitro testing shows that the transparent film provides a viral barrier from viruses 27 nm in diameter or larger while the dressing remains intact without leakage
  • Transparent dressing allows for continuous visibility to the I.V. insertion site
  • Radiologically transparent. Tegaderm products can be safely left on patient’s skin during radiotherapy treatments. Dressing does not act as bolus material, with or without 3M™ Cavilon™ No Sting Barrier Film (CNSBF)
  • Breathable film lets oxygen in and moisture vapour out
  • Dressing flexes with skin for greater patient comfort
  • Can be used to maintain a moist wound environment to facilitate autolytic debridement
