Product Description

Polyken 824 Shrink Wrap Tape can be used for short-term temporary taping edges of shrink wrap to a boat's hull (please always test first with your specific paint or varnish). For longer-term marine storage please look at preservation tape such as Patco 5400. Also used by auto salvage and reclamation yards. It has a polyethylene film and rubber based adhesive. UV protected for prolonged exposure to sunlight (has excellent durability & is solvent and moisture resistance). Polyken 824 Red Baron is coated with a specially-designed adhesive which eliminates residue even after extended periods of exposure (also repositionable). It is also conformable so it adheres to rough surfaces and is also easy to unwind. Shrink Wrap Tape, also described as poly patching tape, is used to seam shrink wrap film sheeting together; patch holes in shrink wrap; secure waste disposal bags; and to hold doors in place. It is also used for stucco & plaster masking and other outdoor masking applications where UV resistance is required. Our distributor gets this made specially from Berry Plastics in white with serrated/pinked edges for easy tearing - no cutting is needed. Country of Origin: United States.

Great experience
Polyken 824 Shrink Wrap Tape [Serrated Edges]
First time purchase. Came fast and product is exactly what I was looking for since I work in the modular industry and use this on the close off plastic. Will be back.

Works great outside
Polyken 824 Shrink Wrap Tape [Serrated Edges]
Works great splicing and fixing ends of shrinkwrap covers. We use it on boats and cars. Have to love the zipper like edges that let you tear the heavy film by hand rather than needing a knife to cut it - I've never found another tape that does that.
Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
