DynaPro Porous Zinc Oxide Tape will offer excellent security for your vulnerable joints and muscles. It also offers comfort and safety during prolonged wearing periods. Like other zinc oxide tapes such as Renfrew Professional Trainers’ Tape, this tape is made from high quality cotton. However, unlike other traditional zinc oxide tapes on the market, it uses a latex free and hypoallergenic adhesive that makes it an ideal choice for those with allergies or sensitive skin. In addition to its hypoallergenic and latex free construction, the adhesive is powerful enough to secure injured joints during periods of intense physical activity. It unwinds smoothly from the roll (see video below) with uniform stickiness from start to end.
The tape also features serrated edges to facilitate tearing it to the size you require. If you prefer, you can also cut it to size using scissors.
This tape is also breathable and porous, so the athlete’s skin will remain dry and comfortable under it. Body temperature will also remain at normal levels. Perspiration or other causes of moisture will evaporate through the tape to maintain maximum wearing comfort. Despite its construction, this tape has the same tensile strength (maximum force with which it can be stretched before breaking) as regular non porous tape – around 140 Newtons/sq inch.
For best results, we suggest that you remove any oils, creams, lotions or moisture from the area to which you intend to apply the tape. In addition, we suggest that you remove any body hair in the region. These precautions will help to ensure that the adhesive takes hold with the required strength.
DynaPro Porous Zinc Oxide Tape comes in a roll of size 1.5″ x 15 yds. You can buy the tape by the roll and the price shown is for a single roll. Please see the Questions and Answers tab on this page if you would like to order by the case.
