Leukoplast Zinc Oxide Tape
Leukoplast® is a quality tan coloured zinc oxide tape that has a very high tensile strength but is still hand tearable.
It ensures a high initial and permanent adhesion. Due to the porous coating of the adhesive Leukoplast® is permeable to air thus reducing the risk of maceration (the softening and whitening of skin that is kept constantly wet).
Leukoplast® is water replant so ideal for use in wet or dirty environments such as rugby and football matches. If you require a tape with a higher tensile strength consider Leukotape P Zinc Oxide Tape or Vivotape P Zinc Oxide Tape (one of Vivomed's best selling tapes and less than half the price of Leukotape P).

Leukoplast® contains natural rubber latex which can cause allergies.
