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.

QUESTION: Is this adhesive to skin or just self adhesive?
ANSWER: Jaybird 4600 is a pressure-sensitive adhesive tape so would adhere to skin. If looking for a tape that will only adhere to its own backing then would want to look at a co-adhesive tape such as Jaybird 2153 or 6000. Thank you.

Great for Olympic Lifts
Jaybird & Mais 4600 Jaylastic Select Premium Lightweight Athletic Stretch Tape
I purchased this tape as an alternative to Average Broz tape. I found this tape to be super soft, sticky and more sweat resistant as it helped me hold onto the bar better. I will buy this again as soon as my supply starts to run low.

Excellent tape for Olympic Weightlifting
Jaybird & Mais 4600 Jaylastic Select Premium Lightweight Athletic Stretch Tape
I use this tape specifically to tape my thumbs for Olympic weightlifting. The flexibility allows a nicely contoured fit without cutting off circulation and the weave of the tape makes it durable enough for 2-hour training sessions and to only have to tape up once for an entire weightlifting meet. Tears off the roll easily and the adhesive seems to handle both hot and cold conditions well without getting messed up from sitting in my gym bag in a hot or cold car I have no real complaints about this tape other than, if you try to rip it lengthwise to make narrower strips, it frays quite quickly, but realistically, that's not a negative.

Incredible for hook grip thumbs
Jaybird & Mais 4600 Jaylastic Select Premium Lightweight Athletic Stretch Tape
This tape was referred to me by Glen Pendlay for Oly lifting. I have tried countless tape brands, types, etc. and this one is a real game changer. Once you use this tape for your Oly lifting, you will never go back.

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
