Coban is a self-adherent wrap made of a porous, non-woven polyester material. Elastic fibers are placed lengthwise in the Coban tape to provide elasticity. Coban by 3M sticks to itself, but not other materials, like skin or hair. Coban is used primarily in the treatment of venous leg ulcers, but can be used in other treatments as well. Coban provides 23mmHg pressure at the ankle. No pins or tape is required to keep the Coban in place, and it does not loosen after application, making Coban ideal for reliable, consistent compression.

- You can count on Coban
The Tan Coban can be used instead of a bandage. It doesn't fall off all day, it is reusable, it holds up all day and its comfortable.
- Coban Tape Review
Of course I use this on my ankle and wrists but you can us it in so many other places- to wrap the handle of my tennis racket or golf club wrap around the handle o luggage to help identify it better when it comes off the conveyor belt at the airport. It gives you a good grip on things.
- Superb Adherent Wrap
This product has no equal when one needs to apply pressure to a wound on an appendage. Perhaps that's why they are ubiquitous in hospital and clinical labs to use after blood draws. Nothing beats them.
- The ONLY solution to wound care for the elderly
My 92 year old stepfather must take two doses of Plavix blood thinner a day, as he is allergic to aspirin. He's also quite active and manages to tear his paper-thin skin frequently. Traditional bandages and even paper tape peel away the healing skin and start the gusher of blood again. We discovered Coban, used with the new non-stick and non-shedding gauze-like bandage. He loves Coban and needs it frequently, so I was delighted to find Vitality Medical's site, where I could easily order multiple rolls in different sizes for a fraction of the cost at the drugstore. I've even used Coban to repair a tear on the armrest of my leather computer chair!
- Great for people with adhesive allergies
I like this product because, I have an adhesive allergy and there is little out in the market to use without adhesives. I even can't use bandaids. So, I use Coban, and gauze for cuts, scrapes, etc. Thank you for your products.
