Product ID: TA0004

£4.00 inc. VAT

Excellent for repairing tears in polythene sheets on Polytunnels, Cloches, etc. This tape is transparent allowing light transmission and is UV stabilised making it resistant to weathering and will normally outlast the polythene cover. Also used to repair cracked panes in Glasshouses. Three widths available. Thickness of 130 micron.

Small tears and splits can be repaired through the use of polythene repair tape. If you own a polytunnel it is also worth having a few rolls of repair tape in your shed drawer as prompt repair of tears/splits will help your cover last its full term.

The surface of the polythene should be dry and clean prior to fixing the tape. The polythene around the area of the tear/split should be pulled back together and then the tape should be placed along the length of the tear/split, and then further shorter pieces placed perpendicular to the first piece (similar to a suture).

If possible this process should be performed on both the inside and outside of the structure.

Good quality tough tape does the job required to repair a split in my polytunnel. I have used the same product several years ago for some slight holes and it is still holding strong. Highly recommended

I have used this to stick a off cut of cover to the 2 sides of the tunnel all the way along so i can deflect the rain into the gutter system. It works brilliant.

The tape does what they say it does. I will wait for the end of the season to see how well the adhesive holds, I am using it to attach a poly strip to direct water from the tunnel surface to a gutter.

It certainly seems tough enough for the job - attaching sheet polyethene to cover a vandalised cover- you have to cut it with scissors, as it won't tear. The adhesive is also very strong, so I expect it to last very well. I used it on a hot day, and wiped the surfaces first with white, spirit to get them very clean.
