Description

The Red Polypropylene Tape is ideal for adding colour to models and/or covering foamie models. It adds strength and colour for a minimal weight gain.

When taping a wing run the tape spanwise, starting from the trailing edge and working forward. The tape over the leading edge should stick over both the bottom surface and the top surface tapes. This way all the ridges are facing downwind.

Did the job nicely

Contrary to Pierre's experience I've found that this tape is comparable with any other packing tape that I've used for any other purpose. I've only ever taped one model which was Big Vick. I did need to make sure that the foam was free of dust because the Vick's build guide says to sand the wings: Maybe next time I'll rinse them in water after that process. Overall though I had no trouble and will be happy to use it on any other foam model

A waste of time, energy and money

The adhesive backing is bloody awful.
Do not use it for your models like the Vick: it does NOT stick to foam or balsa in a consistent manner.
Stick and unsticks unpredictably. Only reliable adhesion is on its own surface. Can't even stick properly to a smooth table top.
Will delaminate on its own accord off concave shapes, giving a creased/blistery appearance to what it covers.
Spare yourselves the aggravation and use proper packing tape.
Ok for trim and decoration.

Sorry that you found this so poor. I have tried it and think it is like other brands I have used, no better, no worse. Can other customers please give their experiences? Should we stop selling this tape?
