1.   What is the difference between professional rigid and economy rigid?
 

 

  • Price and quality
  • Professional rigid is a much more high-quality material with a stickier glue; meaning the product sticks and stays on better.
  • Economy version is great value with a lower grade material that is not as sticky (adhesive).
  
2.   What size rigid tape should I use?
 

 

Our rigid tape comes in 4 sizes; 13mm / 25mm / 38mm / 50mm.

  • 13mm- Predominately used for fingers. This is most popular with netballers for covering up jewellery
  • 25mm- The most popular finger version; used by both men and women
  • 38mm-  Ankle tape
  • 50mm- Knees and shoulders
  
3.   What is the difference between hand tearable and elastic adhesive bandage?
 

 

  • In difference states different terms are used for these.

Hand Tearable

  • Hand tearable is as described; can be “torn” and has a stretchy fibre.
  • Hand tearable is used in all areas to support with more flexibility than E.A.B.

E.A.B (Elastic Adhesive Bangage)

  • E.A.B is a firmer bind, stretching less and can only be cut with a scissors.
  • E.A.B is generally used to support rigid tape in the knee and shoulder area giving a stronger support.
  
4.   What do I do if I am allergic to the tape?
 

 

Generally, it is the glue that causes most irritation due to the zinc oxide used.

Victor Sports has a Hypoallergenic 38mm tape. 

You can also use FIX50 and FIX100 which is applied to the skin under any form of tape preventing any irritation that may be caused.
