The selection of classic tapes includes rigid tape bandages with strong adhesive properties, e.g. to prevent or treat sports injuries. Classic tapes are available in different colours and sizes. Read on here at the end of this page.
Buy Classic Tape and Stabilize Your Limbs
You should buy classic tape if you need stable and non-elastic tape bands to fix fingers or joints. Classic sports tapes are made of cotton or viscose fabric and have excellent adhesive properties. The self-adhesive tapes are coated with acrylic adhesive, polymer adhesive, or zinc oxide rubber adhesive, making them particularly resistant to tension. In addition, the adhesive, which is mostly latex-free, and the cotton fabric of the classic tapes are extremely skin-friendly.

Correct Use of Sports Tapes
Sports tapes are used for preventing muscle discomfort and joint injuries that can occur during sports or physically demanding activities. The rigid tapes support the limbs and remain slip-resistant and stable even under intense muscle strain.
Taping helps stabilize the tendons and skeletal system. During competitions, sports tapes are used, for example, to stabilize the ankles. The self-adhesive, non-elastic tape is securely wrapped around the ankle to provide stability. Thus, the classic tape ensures a firm hold of the joint during sport activities. In rugby or American football, wide tapes are often used to stabilize the wrists.
Special tapes for fingers are very narrow, usually between two and three centimeters wide, and are used, among other sports, in boxing, handball, or volleyball. Multiple fingers are bound together to achieve greater stability and prevent potential finger sprains. However, the tapes also limit joint movement by preventing bending, so they are not used in situations that require fine motor skills.
After use, the tape should be removed immediately, as tightly wrapped tape bands can impede blood circulation.
Use Sports Tape as a Fixation Bandage for Dressings
It can also be useful to buy tape for other applications. Due to its versatility and strong adhesive properties, it can be used, for example, to fix dressings. It can also be used as an underwrap for bandages, such as in the case of a sprained ankle. The strong and skin-friendly adhesive ensures that the tape securely holds onto the body and stabilizes the affected area.
Buy Classic Tape and Enjoy Its Benefits
Buying classic tape brings many advantages. It is easy and quick to apply and guarantees high effectiveness due to its stability. No medical assistance is required to apply sports tape. However, it should be noted that the tape should not be wrapped too tightly around the limbs to avoid interrupting blood circulation.
Properties and Mode of Action of the Tape
To adhere well to various muscle areas and joints, the Classic Tape has the following properties:
- non-elastic and stable
- high adhesive strength
- long-lasting and resistant to tension
- tearable lengthwise and crosswise
The mode of action of a tape bandage primarily focuses on injury prevention. For example, the stable bandaging technique provides support for the capsule-ligament apparatus of the finger joints.
