Tegaderm Alginate AG Silver Dressing 

3M™ Tegaderm™ Alginate Ag is an antimicrobial, highly absorbent wound dressing that is composed of sterile calcium alginate, arboxymethylcellulose and an ionic silver complex (silver sodium hydrogen zirconium phosphate).

When the dressing comes into contact with wound exudate, it releases antimicrobial ionic silver which very effectively reduces the microbial load caused by a broad spectrum of microorganisms, including antibiotic-resistant bacteria (MRSA and VRE). It can also be used for wounds requiring autolytic debridement.


  • Silver ions released in the presence of exudate provide effective antimicrobial protection against a broad spectrum of microorganisms, helping to fight the infection
  • Sustained Antimicrobial protection for up to 7 days allows for longer wear time, increasing patient quality of life and reducing dressing changes
  • Ionic silver complex is not harmful to the patient, resulting in increased patient comfort and safety
  • Can also be used for wounds requiring autolytic debridement
  • Antimicrobial effectiveness - reduces a broad spectrum of pathogens, including MRSA and VRE
  • Soft-gelling absorbency - conforms to the wound and is soft and pliable
  • Ensures a moist environment for optimal wound healing
  • One-piece removal
