Aqua Protect

This plaster’s 100 % waterproof backing is flexible and breathable, which means it offers greater comfort and prevents water from getting trapped around the wound.

The non-stick, skin-coloured wound pad combined with a transparent backing means the plaster will be barely visible.

These plasters have a strong adhesive that offers a high level of protection, making them ideal for washing, showering, bathing and swimming.

They come in different sizes and seal off the wound completely.

How to use

Clean the wound and gently wipe away any foreign objects such as dirt or grit.
Dry the skin around the cut or graze very carefully.
Apply plaster without stretching and avoiding creases.

Use each plaster only once.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 1. How often should I change my plaster?

    Usually, it is recommended to change Standard First Aid Dressings daily due to hygienic reasons. Some advanced plasters such as the Fast Healing Plaster that provide moist wound healing conditions are recommended to be left in place for up to two days or more in order not to interrupt the healing process.
  2. 2. Is it better to let small wounds dry at the fresh air instead of putting on a plaster?

    It is one of the wound care myths that keeping minor cuts and grazes uncovered and let air to them helps them to heal faster. The contrary is true! Research shows that covered wounds heal more efficiently and have a reduced risk of infection. Elastoplast products provide protection until the wound is completely healed.
  3. 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 case of animal or human bites
    • if the wound is in the area of the face
    • if there is insufficient tetanus vaccination
    • and of course always when you have questions or are uncertain.
  4. 4. What if my wound gets infected and suppurates?

    You should contact a medical professional if you recognize 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. 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. 6. Which Elastoplast plaster are waterproof and water resistant?

    The Elastoplast Aqua Protect Strips as well as the Fast Healing Plasters are waterproof and will not go off while washing or showering. All Elastoplast Plastic plaster as well as the Junior plaster are water resistant.
