Product Description

FindTape Aqua Safe Anti-Slip & Gravel Guard Tape is a waterproof, non-abrasive grip tape used in areas with large exposure to water such as pools, showers, baths, bathrooms, kitchens, boats and much more. Since the tape is free from harsh abrasives the surface can be easily cleaned, there is no shedding of grit particles, and it will not scrape or wear away fabric, wetsuits, or skin.

The plastic construction (PVC - polyvinyl chloride) along with its texture ensures stability and provides an effective, waterproof non-skid surface. The material is produced by an embossing roller which creates a pattern that only has exposed areas and therefore prevents accumulating trapped bacteria and dirt. The rubber feel of the tape makes it easy and comfortable to step on with bare feet and is UV resistant.

This tape can also be used as a gravel guard. The thick construction of aqua safe tape provides impact and scratch protection from gravel, stone chips, and other damaging materials to your car, truck, boat, and more. The embossed PVC surface will protect all manner of objects from destroying your paintwork and exposing the bare metal underneath, which if not re-painted or treated can lead to rust, excess costs or even worse, an adverse impact on the service life of your vehicle. Bumpers, rocker panels, bonnets, hoods, car doors, trunks, trailers, fuel tanks and all surface areas on vehicles can be protected using Gravel Guard. Choose black, white, or translucent to best fit your surface color needs.

Please note that FindTape Aqua Safe Anti-Slip tape cannot be applied underwater.

Alert Roll Sizes/Widths

Please note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free. Tape rolls are typically cut to standard tape industry metric-cut sizes - or approx 5% narrower than the nominal size (i.e. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered).

Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

FindTape Aqua-Safe Anti-Slip & Gravel Guard Tape [Waterproof]
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.
acrylic
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.
silicone
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
