Heat Shrink Wrap Tapes come in 2″, 4″ and 6″ widths by 180′. They are designed for repairing holes in the shrink-wrap, for taping pleats and also for attaching zipper access doors. Heat shrink tape is not designed to be stuck to the hull or other parts of the boats as it will leave an adhesive residue.
Preservation Tapes, on the other hand, contain Ultra Violet Inhibitors that allow this tape to be stuck directly to the hull and not leave an adhesive residue when it is removed. Preservation Tapes come in 2″, 3″ & 4″ widths by 108′.
