This tape has Teflon yarns woven into the Dacron tape to reduce friction. 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.
