Antiseptic silver helps to prevent infection:

  • Ideal even for swimming and showering
  • Reliable adhesion

Antibacterial Waterproof Plaster

Elastoplast Antibacterial Waterproof Plasters have a woundpad containing antiseptic silver to help prevent infections, and are suitable for covering all types of smaller wounds.

  • The flexible, waterproof material protects while swimming and showering.
  • The non-stick woundpad with antiseptic silver protects and cushions the wound.
  • The reliable adhesion ensures the plaster stays in place.

The plasters are available as strips that seal all around the wound.

The antiseptic silver wound pad is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria and reduces the risk of infection.

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.

For optimal healing, do not use topical preparations in conjunction with silver as they may reduce its antibacterial effect.

Silver Healing

1. Why would I use a plaster with a silver woundpad instead of a regular plaster?

The use of silver has one big advantage: it reduces the risk of infection from the very beginning. Wound infections are the major cause of wound healing disturbances. And wound infections are not rare – up to 50% of acute wounds become infected! With a silver woundpad, you do the very best to prevent infection.

2. Is there proof that silver works?

Yes, there is. Silver has been used in hospitals for years, and many clinical studies demonstrate the benefits of silver.

3. What kind of germs does silver kill?
Silver is a clinically proven, broad spectrum antimicrobial agent.
It kills nearly all relevant bacteria and fungi.
4. Is Elastoplast with Silver Technology safe to use on children?

Yes, it is. Unlike many other antiseptics, silver is very skin friendly. Resistance to silver is extremely rare.

5. I have diabetes. Can I use Elastoplast with Silver Technology?

Elastoplast with Silver Technology might be especially beneficial for you.

Diabetics are more often affected by wound healing problems. Wounds take longer to heal and have a higher risk of infection. Silver as an effective and clinically established antiseptic ingredient reduces the risk of infection from the very beginning.

For optimal wound healing, we recommend Elastoplast with Silver Technology plasters, which contain antiseptic silver – released as soon as the silver ions come into contact with the wound fluid. Furthermore, all Elastoplast with Silver Technology plasters grant excellent skin compatibility.

6. What is silver allergy?

Silver's allergenic potential is very low. There exist only a few recorded cases of allergy in people who have been in constant contact with high concentrations of silver – for example, silversmiths or silver miners.

Most people who believe they have a silver allergy actually have an allergic reaction to nickel, because silver used for jewellery often contains nickel. Standardised testing confirms that Elastoplast with Silver Technology is skin friendly.

7. Is it necessary to use antiseptics/creams/ointments in combination with Elastoplast with Silver Technology products?

No, it isn't. Elastoplast with Silver Technology Plasters contain antiseptic effective silver that is released as soon as the silver ions come into contact with the wound fluid. Therefore, pre-treatment of wounds is not necessary. Using ointments and creams may actually decrease antimicrobial activity.

8. 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.
9. 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.
