Silicone Soft Plasters

The perfect balance between secure adhesion and pain-free removal.

  • Pain-free removal
  • Sticks securely – even after being repositioned
  • Extra skin-friendly

Innovative silicone adhesive technology

These skin-friendly plasters have been designed to minimize trauma and pain during plaster removal, while ensuring reliable adhesion during wear.

The removal of a plaster with traditional adhesive can result in damage and pain due to the stripping of epidermal cells and hair.

Thanks to its extremely soft and gentle silicone adhesive, Silicone Soft is painless to remove, without disruption of the skin barrier. When removed, it leaves the skin free from residues, no matter how long it has been on the skin.

During wear, the silicone gel layer of Silicone Soft creates a perfect bond between the plaster and the uneven surface of the skin. As a result, the plaster sticks securely to the skin, even after being repositioned.

These sensitive plasters are the ideal solution for people with fragile, irritated or sensitive skin who require extra-gentle and soft wound treatment. They’re also an excellent choice when frequent plaster changes are necessary. Silicone Soft plasters are the perfect solution for all those experiencing pain or anxiety at plaster removal. 

Silicone Soft is available in normal and XL formats for the protection and covering of small as well as medium to larger wounds. It is suitable after minor surgery.

    6. 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.

    7. 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 
    • Always when you have questions or are uncertain.
    8. 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.
    Always see a doctor if the wound is deep, bleeds heavily or shows signs of infection like reddening, swelling or warmth.
