What is zinc oxide tape, and how does it work? What types of injuries are best treated with zinc oxide tape?
Zinc oxide tape is a durable fabric medical tape coated with a zinc-oxide based adhesive that is known for its amazing strength, as well as its antibacterial qualities. This medical-grade tape reacts to heat, which improves adhesion as the body warms up, forming a strong seal. It is the most extensively used sports tape, with athletes, physiotherapists, and medical professionals using it to prevent sports injuries and speed up wound healing.
Read on to make a more informed purchase and determine whether zinc oxide tape is the perfect medical tape for your needs:
Zinc oxide tape is a rigid, non-stretchable tape, best used as a sports strapping tape, a post-operative wound dressing, or to immobilize sprained joints. As a sports tape, or strapping tape, zinc oxide tape adheres best if one end of the tape is anchored to itself after circling the injury. Zinc oxide is also known to soothe irritation and does not tug on skin, making it a more comfortable option for fragile injuries.
