How to use

  • Wind the tape half-lapped, with the adhesive side inside, stretching it evenly to the extent that its original width is reduced to about 10% (its width decreases by 1-2mm).
  • Do not stretch the tape too much. In cold season, warm up the tape (+5°C+30°C) before application.
(Note)To improve the product, the specifications may be changed without any notice.
