What is Zinc Oxide Tape?

Zinc oxide tape is one of the most used forms of sports strapping. The cohesive, non stretch cotton tape impregnated with zinc oxide adhesive easily conforms to the area you are taping. They are generally used by athletes to prevent sports injuries, protect wounds and help cuts heal faster. It is often applied to protect the wrist, knee, ankle, or other joints of the body. It can also support muscles to help stabilise injured ligaments.

Due to its unique properties, zinc oxide tape remains intact when worn for a long period of time, and tolerates moisture, even in humid environments. Zinc oxide tape should be wrapped around the joint area where it can’t restrict blood flow and must not be wrapped around the muscle.

It is also ideal for strapping the feet to prevent blisters and to protect them against injury, especially in sports.

 Zinc oxide tape tears easily by hand along its length and width, without requiring the use of scissors, whilst moulding to the contours of the body. This is beneficial in cases of immediate necessity or emergency. Another benefit is that these zinc oxide tapes are hypoallergenic and skin friendly.
