We have put together a list of the most common tapes and mylar’s used in gliding. We don’t use cheep copies, only films and cloth tapes from Tessa and Mylar’s from Streifeneder. Please contact us if you wish us to put together a kit for you.
Tesa Cloth Tape
Tesa fabrice tape is frequently used for sealing control surfaces where Mylar is not requried. On many surfaces it is common to seal one side with Mylar and the other (less drag critical) side with Tesa tape, thus allowing easy access to control hinges for lubrication without costly mylar replacement. Tesa tape is available in several widths and sold in 50 metre rolls.
