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.

WHAT WIDTH ZINC OXIDE TAPE SHOULD I USE?

Our Zinc Oxide Tape comes in 4 sizes; 1.25CM / 2.5CM / 3.8CM / 5CM

  • 1.25CM - Often referred to as "finger tape" it is predominately used for fingers. This is most popular within martial arts, in particular BJJ where grappling is heavily involved
  • 2.5CM - Hugely popular within boxing for hand strapping
  • 3.8CM -  Ankle, wrist and knee taping
  • 5CM - Knees and shoulder taping

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 OXIDE 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

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
