Answers to commonly asked questions

We have provided answers to some frequently asked questions. Please feel free to email us at info@physicool.co.uk info@physicoolusa.com should you have any further questions.


Is this safe to use during competitions?

Yes. Physicool is specially designed to conform to all the competition rules.


Can Physicool Coolant be used with any bandage?

No, it 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, ensuring a sustained delivery of the coolant for two hours or more. Thanks to the unique weave of the bandage which employs open-cell technology, the coolant can be trapped in the ‘cells’ and release a continual cooling effect.


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. It is best practice that you use the bandage for thirty-minutes at a time. As Physicool draws heat away from the body, you will continue to feel the cooling benefits long after you have removed the bandage.


Will Physicool cause any skin irritation?

No, Physicool should not cause irritation. Physicool has been extensively tested on humans, but if you do experience some form of irritation or discomfort, please contact your doctor.


Can I safely leave the bandage on for more than two hours?

Yes, the bandage will eventually dry out and a cotton support bandage can even be left on overnight, safely.


Can I wash the Physicool bandage?

Yes, you can. You should wash it as you would a normal cotton bandage, in a warm wash.



How long will Physicool last?

If left in its sealed packet, Physicool will last indefinitely. This makes it an ideal choice for First Aid care.


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 spray the Coolant straight onto the bandage to recharge it?

Yes, the coolant can be used directly onto the bandage, whether it is being worn on a limb or it is in the packet.


Does Physicool require refrigeration?

No, you can keep Physicool in your gym bag, an emergency kit, your car or anywhere and everywhere you may need it. Even in the peak of summer, Physicool is always ready instantly the moment you need it, providing cooling relief.


Can I cover the Phyiscool 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, reducing the efficiency of the product.
