ZINC OXIDE TAPE

Rapidly becoming the go-to Zinc Oxide tape for athletes. Our tape is the product of intensive research and professional use. Lighter, stronger, stickier and backed by our 100% PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE it won't let you down.

WHY ZINC TAPE?

WHY USE ZINC OXIDE TAPE - For stability, protection and immobilisation. It's a versatile tape that can stabalise weight-bearing joints such as the knees and ankles. Protect the skin from blisters and and immobilise joints

OUR ZINC OXIDE TAPE - Is lighter, stronger and stickier. We've created a tape that provides protection without compromising on comfort

OUR TAPING MANTRA - Whether you're a seasoned taping pro or a first time taper, the same principles apply. Always fully assess:

  • What needs supporting and / or protecting
  • Which movements need promoting
  • What's the best taping technique
  • Do I actually need tape?!

OUR ZINC TAPE

FABRIC - We use a premium lightweight cotton fabric which has unrivaled tensile strength and conforms to the skin to provide superior support

EXTRA STICKY - Our custom formulated adhesive has been designed to withstand extreme forces and conditions. From grappling in BJJ, running the Marathon Des Sables and the demands of international rugby

HOW LONG WILL IT LAST? - We would always recommend removal within 24hrs for hygiene and effectiveness

ALLERGIES - Our tape is hypoallergenic and latex free. But for first timers always apply a small test patch of tape before you begin

THE FACTS

STRETCH - 0%. It's a rigid tape

SIZE - Our rolls are 10M in length and 4 different widths: 1.25CM, 2.5CM, 3.8CM & 5CM

FINGER TAPE - The 1.25CM Zinc Oxide tape is mainly used to prevent and manage finger injuries, especially in BJJ.

EASY UNWIND - All the way down to the core. Meaning minimal tape is wasted and quicker applications

HAND TEARABLE - A serrated / zig-zag edge (not available on the 1.25cm tape) and fine cotton yarns mean a quick and clean tear

INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED - It's the small things that make a big difference. Our rolls are shrink-wrapped to keep them safe and dry

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.

WE KNOW TAPE

There isn't much we don't know sports taping. Below is a list of our most frequently asked questions. 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

Excellent product

Received the tape really quickly,my son has used it a couple of times playing rugby and it has stayed in place, with no falling down or going out of position. He’s using it for a knee injury so not the easiest of places to bandage and stayin place. Would recommend. Thanks A*****
