Like to get your hands dirty, but not your wounds? A new bandage combines toughness with waterproof properties and high-comfort. Extra strong protection in even the toughest of DIY situations.

When the going gets tough...

Imagine if a do-it-yourselfer, let's call him James Bunton, finally found the time to tackle that tree house in the garden for the boys. He had already gone and gotten the wooden planks. Now it was just him against time: He had two weekends to finish the project in time for the birthday of his eldest son.

One Saturday James Bunton got down to it: Assembling, hammering, drilling. It was fun. It started to rain. He didn’t even mind. But suddenly… one of the longer nails slipped and scratched his left thumb. He was afraid he had to abort the whole mission as he saw blood coming out of the scratch.


James Bunton knew: Not only a well-equipped tool kit is essential to get a job done smoothly – the right bandage is, too. So he tried Elastoplast HEAVY FABRIC WATERPROOF. And yes, not only did it protect his wound and allow him to continue. It also still stuck at the end of the day. Even when he washed his dirty hands later on. He had gotten a lot done, and hadn’t even noticed he had been wearing a bandage. His son’s birthday surprise was saved, after all.

In situations like told in this story, you need a bandage that sticks to you even when the job gets tough. To be on the safe side don't forget to clean your wound and use an antiseptic before putting on the HEAVY FABRIC WATERPROOF bandage.

textile bandage
that is waterproof

2. This bandage

These make the bandage breathable and waterproof at the same time. And what’s more: the extra resistant and heavy duty fabric will not only deliver extra strong protection for your wound, but will also stretch and feel comfortable.
