Apply appropriate padding (TOP BAN) or cotton stockinette (TOP C NET) on the fractured area to protect the skin while applying the Top Cast plaster of paris bandage
Dip the Top Cast bandage for 3 seconds in bucket of water
Squeeze gently and apply on the fractured area
The plaster is easily molded, so it conforms closely to the body part to which it is being applied
The plaster can only be worked for a period of 3-5 minute depending on water temperature.
The initial setting time takes 10-12 minutes. The required time for complete setting, and if allowed first permissibility for weight bearing is 24-48 hours depending on the thickness of the cast.
