Plaster of Paris Bandage is an impregnated gauze cloth containing plaster of paris crystal powder. The plaster bandages are mainly used to protect and immobilize a broken limb. Plaster bandages are often chosen over other options due to their durability and firm cast-formation.
STAYGUARD™ IS THE BRAND OF CHOICE
StayGuard™ Plaster of Paris Bandages are made from premium medical-grade orthopedic plaster to protect and facilitate recovery from bone fractures. Available in various sizes and as normal-setting and fast-setting, our plaster bandages ensure maximum strength, durability, and a smooth cast finish as the premium plaster adheres closely to the gauze with minimal plaster loss. StayGuard™ plaster bandages are latex-free to avoid allergic reaction or skin irritation. Our bandages are manufactured with ISO, CE, and USFDA certifications.
Plaster of Paris is widely used in hospitals and clinics for orthopedic purposes to protect and immobilize a broken limb. When the bandage is exposed to water, a chemical reaction occurs that hardens the plaster. Our bandage is highly moldable with short water immersion and setting time for our fast-setting XtraGuard product series. Plaster bandages remain the most common method of protecting orthopedic fractures due to the rigid structure and ease of application.
Is there an optimum water temperature for setting?
When setting the plaster bandage, use clean tap water in 22°– 25°C (72° – 77° F).
How long does it take to harden?
On average, using the proper method of application, it takes 3 to 8 minutes for the plaster to harden depending if the bandage is normal-setting or fast-setting.
What is the correct immersion technique?
Hold the bandage slanted about 45°, and immerse the bandages in the water for 3 to 5 seconds only. Afterwards, using your thumb and forefinger, squeeze the bandage to get rid of most moisture. Note that the plaster will not get lost even if the bandage is squeezed.
How many layers should I apply?
In most circumstances, three layers are enough. Avoid creating an overly thick cast.
Can Plaster of Paris Bandage cause allergic reaction?
The plaster bandage is not a commonly known allergen, however, depending on the sensitivity of the person, it may cause allergic reaction. If you have allergic reactions such as itchiness or rashes, immediately stop the use of the bandage and contact your doctor.
