Applying a cohesive bandage compression wrap is quick, straightforward, and will hold secure even when the wearer is moving around. 

Why wear a Steroplast Cohesive Bandage?

Long-lasting Support

Self-adherent cohesive bandage wrap should be your first choice when you need to secure something without adhesive, pins, extra taps, or glue. Perfect for holding shinpads or football socks in place, or ensuring dressings remain secure. 

Suitable for Sensitive Skin

Cohesive bandage tape is ideal for wearers with sensitive skin. It doesn’t need adhesive to stay in place, so your skin comes into contact with no unnecessary chemicals and there’s no risk of irritation. A cohesive elastic bandage is designed to be flexible, stretching to conform to the body’s contours with ease, applying just the right amount of gentle pressure without sticking to skin or hair and ensuring breathability. 

Consistent Intermittent Compression

Cohesive bandage wrap can’t be beaten when it comes to compression. A cohesive compression bandage can be stretched to provide various levels of compression depending on the injury and has optimal recoil. 

Cohesive bandages are easy to remove and reapply in controlled intervals, which allows for highly effective intermittent compression. Simply unwrap the elastic cohesive bandage and wind it back around again when needed. No need to waste more tape.

Versatile and Mult-functional

A high-quality cohesive support bandage has many uses. It’s not only ideal as a cohesive sports bandage. 

Surgeons recommend patients use a cohesive conforming bandage for support and stability after surgical treatment, especially for recovering ankles or wrists. 

Self-cohesive bandage tape, sometimes referred to as ‘Vet tape’, is chosen by professional veterinarians to cover dressings on animals’ wounds or compress and protect their limbs. You’ll see vets use cohesive bandages for horses, dogs, cats, and many more animals in need of comfortable bandages that will remain secure.

Your Questions about Cohesive Bandages: Answered

Is cohesive bandage reusable?

Yes, if removed and re-stored carefully. Our cohesive support bandage tape is the only re-useable tape in the Steroplast range. It doesn’t contain glue, so it doesn’t attach to the wearer’s skin or hair. Because of this, it can be carefully removed, wound back around the reel, and reused at another time if needed, making it very cost-effective without compromising on quality. 

Can you wash cohesive bandage?

Yes, carefully. Because cohesive bandage tape only adheres to itself and doesn’t need an adhesive, it can, technically, be washed by hand and used again, offering the same strength and durability for multiple uses. 

Is cohesive bandage waterproof?

The exterior of our cohesive bandage is covered with a water-resistant coating which allows it to repel water whilst maintaining its breathability.
