Packing Tape....FindTape.Com

Post by Dane McGee »

I have been using tape on some projects from FindTape.Com and it is really holding up well.

I buy the 2.6 mil, premium grade acrylic packing tape here:

It has an excellent ahesion value and it shrinks with heat for a tight wrinkle free finish.....Absolutely the best acrylic packing tape I've ever used.

Of course, I do note that KState is currently ranked #2 in the BCS pole... That's good, at least it's not Mizzou... :lol:

You can get it in a 49 inch wide roll! I wonder if they will do a 13 inch roll. Then you could cover a wing in one piece!

I've been using this with great success on my Cobras recently. I still use the sign vinyl on warbirds, but I've switched back to tape on open birds because it is so durable and easy.
It has a good adhesion value and is tough.
