What is Elastic Adhesive Bandage (EAB)?
Our Elastic Adhesive Bandage or EAB as it is commonly known,is a elasticated Cotton bandage with adherent on one side. It is used to support joints and soft tissue strapping and immobilisation. Its strong adhesive helps it stay in place, even in the toughest environments.
The Elastic Adhesive Bandage has been designed with a guide line down the centre of the tape. This helps facilitate an even application when using the different sized tapes. An easy unwind will give a better application therefore giving a good level of conformity.
EAB Tape is also called stretch tape as the material will stretch under tension however it can not be torn. It can only be cut so please remember to always carry scissors – Scissors and Instruments
NB: EAB adhesive works best at room temperature. Please do not leave the tape in your car or a cold store room and then expect it to stick perfectly, give the tape some warmth to activate the adhesive and it will last the course.
