Elastoplast Sport Rigid Strapping Tape 1.25cm x 10m
Elastoplast Sport Rigid Strapping Tape is a robust supportive tape that stabilises joints during vigorous physical activity in all conditions. Effective in both preventative and rehabilitation taping techniques.
Restricts the movement of ligaments, tendons and joints to prevent injury or re-injury under high-stress conditions. Constructed to be as stable as possible with a rubber zinc oxide adhesive mass.
The athletic tape is flesh coloured with pink edges. The pink edges provide quicker application while simultaneously eliminating threading. Be sure to seek advice from a physiotherapist if you’re unsure about the most effective strapping techniques.

Conduct a patch test on your arm or regularly taped area so that you can gauge if you are allergic to the rubber zinc oxide adhesive bandage.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I remove rigid strapping tape?
The most ideal way to remove strapping tape is with purpose-made bandage scissors. Place scissors over a soft part of your limb, then slide under the tape and cut. Use your fingers to peel down gently and evenly over the top of the tape. Avoid peeling at right angles away from the limb.
Elastoplast strapping tapes are designed to not leave behind residue, but will sometimes remain quite sticky, even after extended periods of sweating. If removing your strapping tape is causing pain, try applying tape remover, eucalyptus oil or rubbing alcohol to dissolve the adhesive mass.
