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 avoid creases.

Use each plaster only once.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How often should I change my plaster?
We recommend you change standard first aid dressings daily for good hygiene. 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. Is it better to let small wounds dry in 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. When should I consult a doctor?

We recommend contacting a medical professional if:

  • The wound is deep and causing major bleeding.
  • The wound shows signs of infection such as redness, warmth, pain and swelling.
  • There are embedded foreign objects in the wound.
  • The wound is caused by an animal or human bite.
  • The wound is in the area of the face.
  • There is insufficient tetanus vaccination
  • You have questions or are uncertain.
4. What if my wound gets infected and produces pus?
You should contact a medical professional if you recognise signs of infection – not only pus, but also swelling, redness, heat, pain, itching or burning. In the case of infection, the wound will need special medical treatment.
5. Which plaster should I use for my sensitive skin?

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


6. Which Elastoplast plasters are waterproof and water resistant?

Elastoplast Aqua Protect Strips and Fast Healing Plasters are waterproof and will not float away while washing or showering. All Elastoplast Plastic Plasters and Elastoplast Junior Plasters are water resistant.

7. Which plasters do you recommend for wounds on fingers?

For injuries and wounds on hands and fingers, we recommend our special Elastoplast Fabric Finger Strips. These plasters are extra long so that they stick perfectly on fingers. We also offer a special handset with three different plaster shapes to fit fingertips and knuckles.
