- CAN YOU WASH COHESIVE BANDAGE?
Yes – Cohesive Bandage is the only re-useable tape in the SPORTTAPE range. It contains no glue so won’t stick to your skin or hair. It only sticks to itself so can technically be washed and used again if removed carefully.
However, because the bandage is self-adhesive it can easily roll and fold into various shapes that can very time consuming to unravel.
- IS COHESIVE BANDAGE WATERPOOF?
The outside of COHESIVE BANDAGE is coated with a water-resistant layer which allows it to repel water whilst maintaining it’s breathability. It can be worn safely in wet conditions without losing it’s adherence, but should not be submerged in water for long periods of time as only the outside of the roll is water resistant.
- WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COHESIVE & EAB?
Although they are both elastic compression bandages, COHESIVE and EAB serve 2 very different purposes and have very different properties.
– Contains NO GLUE. It is self-adherent.
– Has a higher stretch level, and much lower tensile strength than EAB.
– Is most commonly used as a compression bandage in non-sporting settings.
- CAN COHESIVE BANDAGE BE RE-USED?
COHESIVE BANDAGE contains no glue and is self-adherent. If you carefully remove your cohesive application it can be washed and re-used a handful of times.
- WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF I APPLY COHESIVE TAPE INCORRECTLY?
Due to the nature of the tape if applied incorrectly you can inhibit blood flow. Therefore we would always recommend that you check circualtion post application and during activity.
- WHAT IS COHESIVE USED FOR IN FOOTBALL?
COHESIVE SOCK WRAP is used to bridge the gap between the top of the ‘grip’ sock and the bottom of your cut-off team sock, creating the illusion of a single sock. This also helps to keep the bottom of the shin pad in place.
SOCK WRAP is a more effective choice as it is wider and has no glue, meaning it can be re-used game-after-game and is kinder on any area of exposed skin.
