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.
