This tape has been designed to protect expensive race sails from wear by reducing friction on contact points of the rig. Unlike anti chafe, rig wrap is supplied self wound - without a liner and will stretch to coil wrap around standing rigging, terminals, forestay, backstay, spinnaker poles, spreaders and any other areas of contact, preventing wear to sails and friction to sheets and guys etc. The tape will stretch and coil wrap around all areas on board.
This tape has also been referred to as Millionaire's Tape as it was previously very expensive and available only through the trade and to professional race crews in long industrial trade length rolls. It has now been made available to all, through PSP.
The friction free surface allows sails or sheets under pressure to slide effortlessly past, reducing wear or damage. The tape is clear/opaque, so there are no unsightly bright colours drawing attention to tape protected areas.
The PTFE film is both UV and temperature resistant and the silicon adhesive enables the tape to operate in temperatures ranging from -70 degrees to 260 degrees centigrade. The tape can be removed without leaving any sticky residues.
