Product Description

Jaybird & Mais 40 Economy Non-Elastic Athletic Tape is a blend of polyester and cotton fibers which makes an economical, but very strong high tensile strength rigid athletic adhesive tape. Used for applications such as ankle and wrist taping where the application goal is to reduce the range of motion while creating joint support at the same time. The strapping tape comes with a serrated edge cut as standard and is hand tearable (the product also tears lengthwise for additional versatility). Jaybird #40 is un-bleached and comes coated with a 100% latex-free hypo-allergenic synthetic rubber adhesive. The tape has a stable adhesive coating even when exposed to heat. Non-sterile, for external usage only. Country of Origin: United States.

Please see Jaybird's Taping Techniques reference for the proper way to tape preventative and post-injury applications.

* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

Excellent Product & Service
Jaybird & Mais 40 Economy Non-Elastic Athletic Tape
I represent a nonprofit foundation that purchases sports equipment for underprivileged youth and disabled veterans. This zinc oxide tape is used to prevent injuries in boxing an martial arts training. That is HUGE when I'm working with my kids and veterans - many of whom are recovering and rehabilitating from injures themselves. This product keeps them healthy - and IT WORKS!
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
