Tape Dacron 5 oz. Folded White 3″ is made from long strips of Dacron® cloth cut with the grain, so that there is very little stretch, and folded in half down the length of the tape. The convenient pre-fold makes this tape easier to use. This tape is not adhesive backed.
Dacron sail tape is used to finish the edges of sails, for reinforcement in the areas where fasteners are placed in canvas projects and to form sleeves into which boltrope can be drawn. Some sailmakers use two or three layers of tape in the place of boltrope. Extra strength can be achieved by using more than one ply.
