AdvaCare is a CE, ISO and USFDA manufacturer of Elastic Cohesive and Adhesive Bandages.
An elastic cohesive bandage, also known as a self-adhering bandage, does not adhere to skin or hair. It includes a maximum compression adhesive that should be applied only once. Both cohesive and adhesive elastic bandages provide increased compression compared to plain or crepe dry bandages, they are to be applied carefully as they can interfere with circulation if wrapped tightly; however, if they are wrapped correctly they do not get loosen up over time thus providing more consistent and long-term level of compression.
Cohesive elastic bandages are available in different materials like non-woven, non-woven + cotton, waterproof absorbent foam, and cotton, as per the requirement of compression, elasticity, and breathability for any injury. The advantage of cohesive bandages compared to adhesive bandages is that the bandage is removable, washable and does not stick to the skin, but rather it sticks to itself.
They are available in various materials like light-weight spandex + cotton, stretch composite, and heavy-weight high-twist cotton, as per the requirement of the injury which may require the highest level of long-term compression. They do not loosen up with time as compared to cohesive bandages and they are non-removable and non-washable.
They are available in various materials like light-weight spandex + cotton, stretch composite, and heavy-weight high-twist cotton. They can only be used once.
