An adhesive bandage is a type of wound dressing that is made up of a soft absorbent pad with an adhesive border surrounding it. The border helps the bandage stay in place. The backing of these self-adhesive dressings can be made from fabric or plastic. The advantages of a fabric bandage is the flexibilty and comfortable material. Bandages with a plastic backing repel water and block out contaminants better than fabric. We carry adhesive bandages in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and materials to best suit your needs.
