PVC SOCK TAPE

WHY SOCK TAPE?

WHY USE PVC SOCK TAPE - An extremely versatile tape, it can be used for everything from holding up socks to securing Cohesive and EAB applications, especially around the legs, wrist and head

OUR SOCK TAPE - Is strong and flexible with a limited recoil once applied. It can quickly be manipulated around a sock or ankle, with extra stretch within the tape to allow for muscle expansion when playing sport

OUR SOCK TAPE

FABRIC - We use a high quality polyvinyl chloride as it is less affected by changes in temperature that other plastic based tapes. It is also waterproof, so can easily last a full match

EXTRA STICKY - Our adhesive ensures that our Sock tape will last a full match with no need to re-apply. It also sticks to itself, meaning that you can wrap multiple layers of tape.

THE FACTS

STRETCH - 150% to 175% The stretch in the tape allows for muscle expansion during activity

SIZE - Our rolls are 20M in length and 1.9cm in width, making them the perfect size to handle

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 shrink-wrapped to keep them safe and dry


WE KNOW TAPE

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.  

HOW DOES ZINC OXIDE TAPE WORK?

Zinc Oxide tape is used as a mechanical method of taping. By design it is non stretchy, has high tensile strength, strong adhesion and conforms to the skin. Depending on the chosen application it works by utlising these properties to provide:

  • Immobilisation
  • Support
  • Protection

WHAT ARE THE COMMON USES FOR ZINC OXIDE TAPE?

Zinc Oxide tape can be used across a variety of different sports. It's most commonly used to support ankles in sports such as Netball, Basketball and Football. To splint and support fingers in grappling sports such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and wrestling, or to support shoulders when playing Rugby.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE WHITE & TAN TAPE?

Our Zinc Oxide Tan is made from Deluxe Rayon cotton which provides unrivalled tensile strength. It is stronger and more durable than cotton tape.

CAN IT BE REUSED?

Unfortunately the applications and tape are designed for single use only.

SHOULD I SHAVE BEFORE APPLYING?

Shaving before applying is not necessary, however it unquestionably helps with adhesion and we would certainly recommend it for more intensive exercise. If you prefer we recommend that you trim the hair down rather than a clean shave.

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.

IS ZINC OXCIDE TAPE WATERPROOF?

Zinc Oxide tape is not waterproof. However, unlike other tapes, our glue is laid to make sure the tape is porous, allowing the skin to breath and moisture to wick away more easily. As a result it is more suited to withstand the demands of sport. Our Zinc Oxide tape has been used by water sports athletes with great success.

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
