From 3M: “A self-adherent elastic wrap that functions like a tape, but sticks only to itself. Available in sterile and non-sterile styles, and in a variety of widths and colors to meet your application needs.”
I take 3M COBAN ELASTIC WRAP with me on every surf trip.
Coban comes in a variety of widths, but my favorite size to travel with is the one-inch-wide five-yard (when fully stretched) spool.
Lifeguards, firefighters, medics, and doctors use Coban every day. Whether securing a splint around someone’s fractured arm or leg, wrapping a dressing and bandages around someone’s gaping wound to control the bleeding, or simply fastening a Band-Aid around a stubbed toe, Coban is the go-to self-adherent wrap.
Coban is often used with splints. It helps immobilize appendages, works as a temporary sling for shoulder injuries, and is great for securing ice packs. Works well for compression therapy as well.
Coban is strong, soft, breathable, and waterproof. It is the ultimate bandage wrap.
