FAQ - Hockey Tape

What is hockey tape made of?

Hockey tape is typically made of cotton, polyester, or a blend of both materials. It usually has a sticky adhesive on one side and a rough surface on the other, which provides grip and texture for hockey sticks and other equipment.

What is the purpose of hockey tape?

Hockey tape is used to improve the grip and handling of hockey sticks, as well as to protect the blade from damage. It can also be used to secure equipment and provide additional support and padding.

How do you apply hockey tape to a stick?

To apply hockey tape to a stick, start at the bottom and work your way up, wrapping the tape tightly around the stick at an angle. Overlap the tape slightly with each pass, making sure to cover the entire blade and handle. You can also add additional layers of tape for extra grip and durability.

How often should you change hockey tape on a stick?

The frequency of changing hockey tape on a stick depends on a number of factors, such as the frequency of use, the condition of the tape, and personal preference. Some players change their tape after every game or practice, while others may go several games or even weeks before changing it.

Can you use hockey tape for other sports or activities?

While hockey tape is primarily designed for use in hockey, it can also be used for other sports and activities that require grip and protection, such as lacrosse, baseball, or even weightlifting. However, it's important to note that hockey tape may not be as effective or durable for these other uses compared to specialized tapes designed for those activities.
