How To Use
Can we use Physicool coolant with any bandage?
No you cannot. Our bandage is made from special 100% undyed cotton, which has its own natural elasticity so compression can be applied during application.
The Physicool bandage has been scientifically developed to bind the coolant to the surface of the bandage and ensure a sustained delivery of the coolant for two hours plus. This is achieved through the unique weave of the bandage which employs open-cell technology which traps the coolant in the ‘cells’ and releases a continual cooling effect.
Can I wash the Physicool bandage?
Yes you can. Wash it as you would a normal cotton bandage, in a warm wash.
How long will Physicool last?
Answer ContentIn its sealed packet, Physicool will last indefinitely, making it an ideal choice for First Aid care.
How many times can I use the Physicool bandage?
The bandage will give 2-3 hours of cooling, when it is completely dry it can then be recharged again and again. Best practice is to use the bandage for thirty-minutes at a time. Because Physicool draws heat away from the body you will continue to feel the cooling benefits long after you have removed the bandage.
How many times will the 500ml Physicool coolant recharge the bandage?
A 500ml bottle will give approximately seven complete recharges of a size A bandage, and five to six full recharges of a size B bandage.
Can I respray the coolant straight onto the bandage?
Yes, the coolant can be used directly onto the bandage whether it is on a limb or in the packet.
Does Physicool require refrigeration?
No. You can keep Physicool in your car, your gym bag, an emergency kit, anywhere and everywhere. Even in the heat of summer, Physicool is always ready instantly the moment you need it.
Can I cover the Physicool bandage?
No, because Physicool works by rapid evaporation which requires the flow of air. Covering the bandage will reduce the air supply and rate of evaporation.
