Fabric

Elastoplast Fabric plasters are extra flexible and breathable fabric strips. They are suitable for covering all types of smaller, everyday wounds such as scratches, cuts and grazes. The material stretches with the skin’s movements making them suitable for use over joints and other moveable parts of the body. The non-stick wound pad ensures that the wound is cushioned and protected while the strong adhesive plaster stays in place.

Our plasters are available in:
  • Different sized strips which are designed to seal all around the wound
  • A dressing length which can be cut to the ideal size

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How often should I change my plaster?

For hygienic reasons, it is recommended that you change Standard First Aid Dressings daily.

2. Is it better to let small wounds dry at the fresh air instead of putting on a plaster?
It is a commonly held myth about wound care that keeping minor cuts and grazes uncovered helps them to heal faster. The contrary is true! It is proven that covered wounds have a reduced risk of infection and heal more efficiently. Elastoplast plasters are the ultimate addition to your first aid supplies. They provide caring, antibacterial protection until the wounds are completely healed.
3. When should I consult a doctor?

We recommend contacting a medical professional under the following circumstances:

  • If the wound is deep and causing major bleeding
  • If the wound shows signs of infection such as redness, warmth, pain and swelling
  • If there are embedded foreign objects in it
  • In the case of animal or human bites
  • If the wound is in the area of the face


Of course, whenever you have questions or are uncertain it is advisable to get in contact with a medical professional.

    4. What if my wound gets infected, swells, creates pus, or suppurates?

    You should contact a medical professional if you recognise any signs of infection. This is not only the occurrence of pus but also swelling, redness, heat, pain, itching or burning. In case of infection the wound will need medical care and special medical treatment.

    5. Which plaster should I use for my sensitive skin?

    If you have very sensitive skin we recommend using the Elastoplast Sensitive products. These plasters are especially developed for sensitive skin and are very skin friendly and hypoallergenic.

    6. Which Elastoplast plaster are waterproof and water resistant?

    The Elastoplast Aqua Protect Strips as well as the Heavy Duty Waterproof Fabric range are waterproof and will not go off while washing or showering. All Elastoplast Plastic plasters as well as the Junior plasters are water resistant.
