At Tiger Supplies, we offer a wide range of First Aid Kits and Accessories, including a quality selection of Plasters.

It is advisable to include plasters in all first aid kits as they are an essential item. In any given situation, you need to be equipped with the right type of plaster.

Plasters or adhesive dressings are used to cover minor cuts, abrasions, and lightly bleeding wounds. Infection and further damage can be prevented by protecting such injuries. 

With so many colours and sizes of plaster available, it can be tempting to make do with what you have on hand. However, choosing the right plaster can make a substantial improvement in terms of both durability and comfort, leading to a smoother and more efficient healing process.

Plasters can be divided into three categories:

  • Washproof 
  • Fabric
  • Blue plasters

Washproof plasters are water-resistant, as they can withstand humidity and wet conditions.  This type of plaster is useful for covering hand wounds.  Its properties repel water and dirt, allowing you to wash your hands, bathe or swim without worrying about the plaster slipping off.

At Tiger Supplies, you can find Waterproof Plasters that come in a box of 100 and are made of a soft, wash-proof and flexible material for ultimate comfort against the skin. This product will allow the skin to breathe whilst being sterile with low-allergy adhesive.

Fabric plasters are more durable and breathable. They have good adhesive strength, so they can be used for long periods of time. They are usually brown in colour and are suitable for small cuts on fingertips and knuckles. However,  although they are flexible, they are not resistant to moisture. They are not effective at keeping the wound dry.

Our Fabric Plasters come in boxes of 100 and have excellent strength with traditional adhesive. This product offers heavyweight elastic fabric plasters for ultimate protection.

Blue plasters are ideal for staff working in food and catering environments. This type of plaster is also waterproof, metal detectable, and resistant to prevent cross-contamination between blood and foodstuffs. They comply with UK food hygiene regulations as they are visually detectable.  Blue plasters are highly visible and can be detected if dropped in food handling and preparation areas.  They are also electromagnetically detectable due to a thin metal strip inside the plaster. This metal strip allows food to be scanned with the aid of metal detectors.

At Tiger Supplies, you can also find Blue Detectable Plasters, which are soft, flexible and latex free for ultimate comfort against the skin. This is a breathable product that allows the skin to breathe whilst being sterile with low allergy adhesive.

We also offer tape variants that are ideal for sensitive skin and blisters. All of our plasters come in assorted shapes and sizes to suit your needs.

At Tiger Supplies, you can also find Burns Kits and Medical Thermometers. If you cannot find what you are looking for, do not hesitate to contact us. Our sales representatives might be able to source exactly what you need.
