WHY USE ZINC OXIDE TAPE?
01 TOUGH SUPPORT - ZINC OXIDE TAPES are rigid (non-stretch). This means they are perfect for immobilising, restricting range of motion, and providing support for a ligament or muscle.
02 TRUSTED PROTECTION - ZINC OXIDE WHITE is widely used to protect non-weight bearing joints: fingers, wrists and thumbs from the inevitable injuries in contact sports. Meanwhile, ZINC OXIDE TAN is the tape of choice for protecting ankles and knees.
03 BLISTER PREVENTION - As a side-effect of being incredibly durable ZINC OXIDE tapes are used for blister prevention. ZINCE OXIDE WHITE is primarily used around hands whilst ZINC OXIDE TAN protects the feet.
HOW DOES ZINC OXIDE TAPE WORK?
ZINC OXIDE tapes are the go-to tape for providing support and protection. Here's how they manage to keep you safe and handle the demands of sport.
IMMOBILISATION - ZINC OXIDE tapes are inelastic, which means they don’t stretch. You can use this rigidity to help restrict and prevent painful movements, or movements that may cause further injury.
SUPPORT - The rigid nature of ZINC OXIDE tapes means they can be used to provide structural support to muscles and joints, acting as external slings that protect or reposition muscles and joints.
PROTECTION - ZINC OXIDE tapes can provide protection for your skin and joints, especially when grappling, climbing or weightlifting. Using ZINC OXIDE tape reduces the risk of dislocations, blisters, calluses, grazes and cuts.
