Product Description

Jaybird & Mais 4500 Jaylastic Lightweight Athletic Stretch Tape is Jaybird's original lightweight, hand-tearable long stretch tape. Application uses include those where you want to create support, but where you also want to achieve a greater range of motion. 4500 Jaylastic in un-bleached white can also be used in conjunction with a white rigid non-elastic tape for a taping application with memory characteristics. The black rolls are dyed and have a 100% latex-free black synthetic rubber adhesive and are designed for black shoe spatting taping applications. Each roll of Jaybird 4500 Stretch Tape is 100% usable down to the core. The adhesive coating is stable when exposed to heat. Hand tearable and made in the USA. Non-sterile, for external usage only. Made in the U.S.

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.

Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

Best Thumb Tape I've Used! Allows Natural Articulation.
Jaybird & Mais 4500 Jaylastic Lightweight Athletic Stretch Tape
I use this tape exclusively on my thumbs for Olympic weightlifting. I developed some painful joint problems in my thumbs from using regular athletic tape because it restricted the natural movement of the joint when I was using the hookgrip. After a recommendation from a very knowledgeable weightlifting resource, I purchased this Jaylastic 4500. The tape is breathable, so your skin doesn't get soft and wrinkled while wearing this. The texture is just enough to provide some grip when lifting the barbell. The adhesive is just right so that once you wrap it a couple wraps around the thumb, you can squeeze it all around to "set" the adhesive and it stays snug and generally doesn't move, even during an entire training session or competition. I've tried many of the other "thumb tape" brands, but this stuff is by far my favorite, and it's way more economical than the other brands.

Great Tape for weightlifting. Got tired of reordering all the time and paying/waiting for shipping so this time I just bought an entire case. Hopefully this will last me over a year :-)

The Best Flexible Tape you will find
Jaybird & Mais 4500 Jaylastic Lightweight Athletic Stretch Tape
I use this tape for Olympic lifting and it is a life saver for the hook grip. The only thing I will mention, is the black tape seems a bit thicker/harder to tear.

Best product ever!
Jaybird & Mais 4500 Jaylastic Lightweight Athletic Stretch Tape
This tape works miracles when blisters are getting worse. It covers the area with a soft yet strong protection that moves with the foot and doesn't roll up inside socks. A real lifesaver especially when paired with Second Skin!
Jaybird & Mais 4500 Jaylastic Lightweight Athletic Stretch Tape
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.
acrylic
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.
silicone
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
