You should use FIXATION TAPE anytime you are applying ZINC OXIDE TAPE to an area where there is a lot of joint movement. FIXATION TAPE acts as a protective barrier between your skin and the aggressive glue used on strapping tapes. It’s very porous, so allows your skin to breathe and your applications to be less affected by sweat. HOW LONG DOES FIXATION TAPE LAST? Although both tapes are designed protect the skin prior to taping, which one you choose will depend on the area that you’re taping, whether any glue is allowed to touch the skin and whether you have time to cut strips of FIXATION TAPE.
