The unique properties of Grafting Tape allow:

BIODEGRADABILITY: The tape biodegrades naturally in exposure to sunlight, eliminating labor costs necessary to cut away standard tapes after use, and providing an enviornmentally responsible answer to the problem of waste.

ELASTICITY: Grafting Tape can be stretched beyond its original length. The elastic nature of the material allows small pieces to be used for the application, and ensures an extremely tight grip on the bud or graft to keep it firmly in place, as is necessary to allow successful growth. Elasticity also means the tape expands as the plant grows, avoiding cutting into the plant which is a common problem with standard budding and grafting tapes.

SELF ADHESION:  Grafting Tape is not adhesive in its normal stored form, but becomes self-adhesive when stretched. This allows quick application with no need of tying knots, and combined with the firm seal created  by the film's elastic nature, means that the bud or graft is kept in place even in windy conditions.

WATER PROOFING:  The film has a wax content to keep it waterproof, so the bud or graft will not dehydrate, but air can pass through the permeable tape allowing the bud to breathe. The wax content also means that use of Buddy Tape can eliminate the need for waxing in covered areas.

COMPLETE BUD COVER:  Grafting Tape is pierced by the bud as it begins to grow, and because of the permeable nature of the material allows the bud to breathe, the bud can be completely covered. This provides protection from infection and insects.
