What is Guard-Tex?
Guard-Tex is a revolutionary protective tape that has been formulated to provide blister protection and pain relief for athletes, workers, and hobbyists. The Guard-Tex formula is uniquely designed to prevent blisters - it is waterproof and adhesive-free. Since moisture and adhesives create friction when rubbing against skin, Guard-Tex protective tape is simply unparalleled for blister protection.
Why Use Guard-Tex?
The most common cause of blisters is friction. When there is too much friction in a focused spot on the skin, cell damage occurs. When a blister is formed, fluid develops inside a blister in order to protect and heal the damaged tissue.
Blisters can develop much more quickly when the skin is sweaty and sticky, as it becomes softer and therefore more susceptible to damage.
Unlike other athletic tapes, Guard-Tex is breathable, waterproof, and adhesive-free, which means that skin is protected under the most adverse conditions.
Who Uses Guard-Tex?
Millions of athletes, workers, and hobbyists around the world have used Guard-Tex to protect their fingers and toes for over 70 years.
Ballerinas have called it a "lifesaver for pointe." Golfers use it on their guide hand when gloves reduce too much feel. Trail runners find it indispensable when tackling long runs. Guard-Tex can be found at every major marathon, and was spotted recently at the famed 206 mile Camino Portuguese.
Whether it's for assembling mattress springs, rock climbing, fishing, or woodworking, Guard-Tex has a place everywhere you need blister and cut protection, from the shop floor to the utility closet, and inside the locker room.
