A self adhesive foam tape which when placed over Polytunnel hoops prolongs the life of the polythene by at least one year. Protects the polythene cover against hot spots preventing heat degradation. The slippery surface allows the cover to glide over the frame preventing abrasion and snagging of the cover during construction. First Tunnels always uses Anti Hot Spot Tape when constructing polytunnels. Three widths available - 20mm, 25mm & 30mm, 9 metres on each roll.

useful stuff - but don't expect it to make a lot of difference to the life of your polytunnel cover as it extends life by about one season

Easy to use, this tape is recommended to help prolong the life of your tunnel cover as it reduces the contact with the tunnel frame, it was inexpensive so I thought it well worth the extra couple of pounds. Easy to fit and it helps the plastic slide over the frame. I would get this again next time.
