The life of polyethylene film repair tape is limited due to degradation processes induced by sunlight and heat. The location where the product is applied will greatly influence the product life.
Love this product, it's extremely adhesive and effective for small poly repairs.
I used to buy the tape with the paper lining. It was great. Lately I've been buying the tape without the the liner. Its much cheaper. The problem is, it deteriorates in the sun in less than a year.
I like not having to mess with the liner, but I'm going back to it.
I been buying your tape for 6 years now and 2-years ago the quality of the tape is half what was. Mil thickness is less and the adhesive has less adhesion. Can’t use anything smaller than 8-inch tape.
Worked well for me
Tape does not deteriorate from the sun like some others.
Ever cut just a liittttle to much off the end of the film you were trying to install on your greenhouse? I did and it left me in a learch. used this tape to put a few inches of film back on and it worked like a charm.
It's repair tape and it patches up holes. An animal got trapped between some excess plastic and the wall plastic on my high tunnel and tore a few holes in it. I ordered the 2" tape with liner to fix up the damage before winter and it's working well so far. The liner makes life a lot easier and strips can be cut off the roll without them sticking to everything.
New / clean plastic can probably be taped together with this but it's probably going to be one of the more frustrating solutions to joining sheets of plastic, more-so if the plastic isn't pulled tight. Old / dirty plastic film complicates it more.
I recommend it for patching holes, but only use it to join plastic sheets as a last resort. I would buy this again if I need more.
Best tape ever
Last year's repair still holding, even though the torn plastic was dirty and wet. Lasted thru snow,wind, rain. Had a few more places to repair this year and now ordering more.
Works great. Greenhouse had 2 pannels with 8 ft long gashes from a windstorm. Repair was fast and holding well to the plastic, even with wind and rain.
