What’s the Difference between Gauze and Crepes?
Pickering Safety bandage crepes are high quality and designed for emergency safety situations. Adhesive crepes and elastoplast crepes are among some of our best selling crepes. These products are for dressing retention and offer support while stopping swelling. Crepe is distinct from gauze because it is firmer once applied and offers more support to bones and ligaments – this makes it an effective bandage for injuries that may cause swelling, especially those that should be kept still.
Adhesive & Elastoplast Crepes
Crepe is a distinct, crisp textile used to set injuries in a particular position. Our bandage crepes offer lightweight compression to reduce swelling and will offer support to sprains, strains or more serious inflammatory injuries. These products are most commonly used to treat ankle, wrist, elbow and knee injuries but can really be used anytime support is needed in a joint or tender location. Elastoplast comes in three different sizes depending on the scale of the injury and it’s often a good idea to keep a variety of sizes on hand in case of emergencies.
