TEARABLE EAB

The Swiss Army knife of taping. Backed by our 100% PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE our Tearable EAB is a kitbag essential for athletes and medical professionals.Whether you're looking to support a joint, protect your hands or secure lifting blocks, Tearable EAB gets the job done fast  

WHY EAB TAPE?

WHY USE TEARABLE EAB - The real beauty of Tearable EAB is its versatility:

  • It can be applied directly to the skin to provide moderate support
  • Used as a compression wrapfor securing dressings
  • Help fix braces and lifting blocks in place
  • Wrapped around the hands to protect from blisters

OUR TEARABLE EAB TAPE - Is rapidly gaining an unrivalled reputation for delivering value and performance. We've designed it so you can forget about it. A huge favourite within rugby, weightlifting and football  

OUR EAB TAPE

FABRIC - We use a hand-tearable lightweight elastic adhesive bandage made from a latex-free woven cotton spandex

ADHESION - We scoured the globe to find a glue that could deliver the same level of adhesion with 50% less coverage. This dramatically increases the breathability and performance of the tape

BREATHABILITY - What sets our EAB apart is that we lay our glue in a porous fashion (small holes) this helps the tape "breath" resulting in longer lasting applications and less irritation

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST? - We would always recommend removal within 24hrs for hygiene and effectiveness. You certainly won't need to worry about reapplying at half-time!

THE FACTS

STRETCH - 175% stretch allows the fabric to offer light support, fixation and compression

SIZE - Our rolls are 4.5M in length and available in 3 different widths: 2.5CM, 5CM & 7.5CM 

HAND TEARABLE - No scissors are required

SMOOTH UNWIND - All the way down to the core. Meaning minimal tape is wasted and application is made easy

INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED - It's the small things that make a big difference. Our rolls are flow-wrapped to keep them safe and dry until you're ready to use them

WATCH & LEARN

Our tape is only as good as the application. But don't worry, we've created easy-to-follow application videos to deliver simple, effective results.

Below is a list of our most frequently asked questions. However, if you don't find the answer you're looking for please get in touch.  

WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EAB & TEARABLE EAB?

Seems like a stupid question doesn't it?! However the difference is far greater than the names would suggest. Both are elasticated adhesive bandages that adhere to the skin but that's where the similarity ends.

EAB
  • EAB has a firmer bind, stretching less and can only be cut with a scissors
  • EAB is generally used to support Zinc Oxide (rigid tape) on the knee and shoulder area to provide stronger support
TEARABLE EAB
  • As the name suggests, TEARABLE EAB can be torn by hand
  • It has a 120% stretch
  • It is more versatile and used in many areas to provide support but with greater flexibility than EAB

WHAT WIDTH EAB TAPE SHOULD I USE?

Our Tearable EAB comes in 3 sizes; 2.5CM / 5CM / 7.5CM

  • 2.5CM - Use to protect ears, fingers and smaller joints
  • 5CM -  Ideal for Ankle, wrist and knee taping. Also used for thumb taping and the hook-grip in weightlifting
  • 7.5CM - Knees and shoulder taping. Securing lifting blocks for rugby

IS EAB TAPE WATERPROOF?

Neither EAB or TEARABLE EAB is waterproof. However they are both breathable and water resistant, meaning that it will survive a heavy down pour during a match but they can not be used for water sports.

CAN IT BE REUSED?

EAB can only be used for single use

SHOULD I SHAVE BEFORE APPLYING?

Shaving before applying is not necessary. The level of adhesion combined with adequate pressure will hold the EAB in place

WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF I APPLY INCORRECTLY?

Due to the nature of the tape if applied incorrectly you can inhibit blood flow. Therefore we would always recommend that you check circualtion post application and during activity.

CAN I APPLY THE TAPE MYSELF?

We would always recommend you seek the advice of a medical professional before applying. Once, checked out you can easily self-apply. There are areas of the body, which may require some help or an extra pair of hands, such as postural, lower back and shoulder, however we supply clear instructions to follow so anyone can do it.

SHOULD I BE AWARE OF ANY ALLERGENS?

All of our tapes are hypoallergenic and latex free. However, if you have a known Zinc Oxide allergy you should opt for a different tape. First time tapers should always apply a small test patch of tape before you begin
