What & how
Safety and hygiene are of utmost importance in the food industry.
Suppose that a blood stained plaster is found in your yogurt container, or your soup in a restaurant, in the minced meat at the butcher, or in the bread at the baker's!
All companies involved in the preparation, processing, packaging, distribution and the transport of foodstuffs must have first aid materials that satisfy these standards. Detectaplast ® offers a complete range of detectable first aid products that meet these strict but necessary standards.
All Detectaplast ® detectable blue plasters meet HACCP, IFS and BRC standards and have been specially designed so they will not end up in the food chain.
How does this work?
Because of their especially good adhesive strength they remain in place in difficult working conditions such as in the food industry and industrial kitchens. The blue color ensures that they are quickly seen should they still come off. An aluminium strip under the wound pad ensures that they can be removed from the production process by metal detectors. An X-ray thread under the wound pad ensures they are visible to x-ray detectors where metal detectors cannot be used ( for instance, when the food is packaged in aluminium film).

The Detectaplast ® Universal plasters are washproof and contamination resistant, made from strong PE (polyethylene) material.
The Detectaplast ® Premium plasters are waterproof, contamination resistant and elastic, made from strong PU (polyurethane) material. The microperforated PU-film allows the skin to breathe, which is important for proper wound healing. This also prevents the skin from becoming moist under the plaster, which would allow the plaster to loosen more quickly. The PU-film also protects the wound from water, dirt, bacteria and viruses.
The Detectaplast ® 2nd skin plasters are waterproof, contamination resistant and elastic, made from thin PU (polyurethane) material. The PU-film is thinner than the Premium plasters and feels like a second skin. This makes the plaster still more comfortable to wear. The PU-film allows the skin to breathe, which is important for proper wound healing. This also prevents the skin from becoming moist under the plaster, which would allow the plaster to loosen more quickly. The PU-film also protects the wound from water, dirt, bacteria and viruses.
The Detectaplast ® Elastic plasters are flexible, made from elastic textile. These plasters are very comfortable and highly suited to mobile body parts.
The Detectaplast ® Hydrogel plaster is suitable for small first and second-degree abrasions and burns as well as for chronic wounds that do not heal well. The sterile hydrogel contains 60% water, has a slight cooling effect and reduces pain. The plaster creates a moist wound environment for quicker healing. The PU-film allows the wound to breathe and obstructs bacteria. Not suitable for wounds with heavy discharge given its limited absorptive capacity.
Plasters with varying dimensions.
In addition to various quality plasters each with its own application, Detectaplast ®'s line also has plasters in varying sizes in order to provide the best care possible at any place on the body.
In addition to the classic dimensions, we have long finger bobs (12 cm and 18 cm long) suited for good fixation around the joints of the fingers. The knuckle plasters are specially designed in an H-shape for comfortable protection of the knuckle. The butterfly plasters are also designed to cover a wound on the fingertip. Finally, plasters on a roll are available in a dispenser that makes it easy to cut them to fit.
