Orthopedic casting tape is also known as orthopedic casting bandages are advantageous in comparison with plaster of Paris as it is strong, durable, moldable and comfortable. Like plaster bandages, fiberglass and polymer are easy to apply, but light-weight and more durable. As fiberglass or polyester are impregnated with a water activated polyurethane, they produce less mess when they are applied and are commonly used for non-displaced fractures and severe soft-tissue injuries. Orthopedic cast tapes are beneficial over traditional plaster as they are made of synthetic material.
