If you’re looking for the classic, durable plaster, look no further. However each of Leukoplast’s offerings provide unique forms of protection. For those suffering from allergies the latex free Barrier, AquaPro, Kids and Elastic plasters may be a better choice. 

Waterproof Protection with the Leukoplast Barrier and the Leukoplast Aquapro

The Leukoplast Barrier is an ideal choice for long lasting comfort and breathability, paired with anti-bacterial protection.

Leukoplast Leukomed

The Leukoplast Leukomed offers secure yet gentle protection for up to seven days. Suitable for both normal and sensitive skin the Leukoplast Leukomed dressing is a good all-rounder.  

Leukomed T Plus

The Leukomed T Plus is an absorbent, waterproof film dressing which protects cuts, wounds and abrasions from water and bacteria acting to prevent contamination. Easily applied using the unique red-strip mechanism the Leukomed T Plus provides comfortable protection from infection.

Leukomed Sorbact

Acting to remove bacteria from infected wounds while preventing contamination the Leukomed Sorbact offers breathable shower-proof protection. Although somewhat similar to the T Plus the Leukomed Sorbact utilises anti-microbial technology to protect infected wounds and prevent further infections

Leukomed Cutisoft

If comfort is the priority, the Leukoplast Cutisoft offers gentle protection for pain-sensitive wounds and minor burns. The sterile and skin-friendly dressing can also be used to cleanse or dress painful and sensitive wounds.

Leukoplast fixation tape provides durable and long lasting fixation of bandages and dressings on normal, non-sensitive skin. The classic Leukoplast tape offers adaptability and versatility due to it’s simple and durable design. The classic Leukoplast fixation tape is suitable in most cases.

The Leukoplast Hypafix is a wide area fixation tape suitable for both normal and sensitive skin types. Self-adhesive with quick and easy application, the Leukoplast Hypafix is easly cut and shaped, making it perfect for fingers, joints and other difficult areas.

Leukoplast Elastomull haft

Although the Elastomull haft is very similar to the classic Elastomull bandage the Elastomull haft is uniquely self-cohesive. The self-cohesive haft is self sticking meaning it sticks to itself rather than to the skin. As such, no fixation tape's required. This significantly increases comfort and ease of application.  Latex-free and skin friendly the Elastomull haft is ideal for those with allergies or sensitive skin.
