FAQs

What Is Zinc Oxide Tape Used For?

Zinc Oxide tape is widely used for strapping injured joints. These include knees, shoulders, ankles, elbows and fingers following injuries. Zinc Oxide tape is strong and cohesive, meaning it doesn't stretch too much with movement. It can offer strong support to injured body parts or help to prevent injuries from occurring. This is especially true during sporting activities. The athletic tape can be applied to help reduce pain. It can also be used to restore normal movements until the injured body part is strong enough to do the job naturally. Using tape to support an injured body part can also provide enhanced confidence when returning to activities after injury. By providing external support, more normal movement is likely to be produced.

Is Zinc Oxide Tape Waterproof?

Zinc Oxide tape is usually water-resistant. It's able to withstand a couple of showers, baths or swimming activities. The high-water repellent properties of Zinc Oxide tape mean that it often lasts for extended wear when compared to other tapes.

But Zinc Oxide tape is not fully waterproof. This is because it needs to allow the skin to breathe and wick away moisture. So it's a good idea after a shower or bath to pat the tape dry. This helps to rid it of any moisture and helps to maintain the contact between tape and skin.

What Is Leukoplast Tape Used For?

Leukoplast tape is a tan-coloured zinc oxide tape with high tensile strength. It's both waterproof and dirt repellent. This means that it's extremely durable in wet and demanding environments. The tape can be torn easily by hand. And it's ideal for securing dressings or medical equipment such as tubes or catheters. Leukoplast tape can include a broad range of products used for treatment of cuts, abrasions, lacerations, burns, infected wounds as well as securing bandages to the skin.

Sports Physio Tape

It is frequently used by physiotherapists and sports physios in the prevention and treatment of sprains, strains and other common sports injuries.
