KT Tape Pro Kinesiology Tape
KT Tape Pro Kinesiology Tape helps to relieve pain and provide support exactly where you need it. This tape is designed to stay in place through multiple demanding workouts for up to seven days even through the harshest conditions including daily showers, humidity, cold, the pool, and more. It's the world's only 100% synthetic kinesiology tape, re-engineered with stronger adhesive to last during your toughest conditioning.
KT Pro features the patented Secondskin Adhesive and a much longer elastic core which delivers better support for muscles, joints, and tendons without restricting comfort and range of motion. The elastic core retains its elasticity better than cotton kinesiology tape ensuring stronger support. This tape is your endurance partner!
The synthetic microfiber construction is naturally anti-microbial, breathable, fast-drying, and provides superior weight-to-strength ratios. Wear Pro tape in the shower, the pool, or the beach comfortably. With embedded reflective elements, this tape is ideal for use in low light conditions and road training for an added bit of safety.

Question & Answers
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).
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 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
