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.
Strapping tapes like ZINC OXIDE TAN TAPE 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.
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.
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.

ZINC OXIDE TAN TAPE is a great option if you want to reduce the risk of blisters. Read our blog now and discover how it has been used by ultra distance runners with great effect.
It works by preventing your shoe or sock from rubbing directly against the skin. It is incredibly sticky, but also lightweight and breathable. This means that moisture passes through the tape and prevents blisters from forming due to excess moisture around the foot.
ZINC OXIDE TAN is made from a rayon cloth, which provides unrivalled tensile strength. It is 3x stronger and more durable than ZINC OXIDE WHITE, which is made from an organic cotton cloth. Cotton is more lightweight, pliable and comfortable to wear.
The tape you choose should be based on budget, joint size and the purpose of the taping application.
Our ZINC OXIDE TAN TAPE comes in 2 sizes; 3.8CM & 5CM
3.8CM – The most commonly used size of ZINC OXIDE TAPE. Perfect for ankle, wrist and knee taping.
5CM – For large joints. Knees and shoulder taping. In which case it is often used in conjunction with EAB TAPE.
Unfortunately ZINC OXIDE TAPE is for single use only.
ZINC OXIDE TAPE is not waterproof but it is water resistant. 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.
Our ZINC OXIDE glues don’t contain any colophony or rosin, which are the normal irritants for anyone with an Elastoplast allergy.
However, we would recommend that anyone with an Elastoplast allergy trials a small test patch before using ZINC OXIDE TAPE as the skin sensitivity may disagree with any kind of adhesive against it.
ZINC OXIDE TAN TAPE is a no brainer when it comes to ankle strapping due to its high tensile strength and no stretch. Here’s how you can tape your ankle for added protection.
