Compared with other bandages, Surgical waterproof orthopedic casting tape has good waterproof performance, which can prevent 85% of the water from infiltrating into the affected area. After contacting the water environment, it can also effectively ensure that the affected area is dry, and has good air permeability, light weight and easy to use. Surgical waterproof orthopedic casting tape produced by Shandong Haidike Medical Products Co., Ltd. is made of high elastic fiberglass cloth and dipped in polyurethane. It has no irritation to the skin, large mesh, good air permeability, waterproof, small shrinkage after drying.
