Bowlus Maxi Gap Seal Tape 1" (25mm)

(Inc. 20% VAT)
(£11.21 Exc. VAT)

Bowlus wing tape is the choice of champions, used by multiple World Champion Andy Davis and many of the British team.

This premium quality wing tape is ideal for gliders that are left rigged - either inside or outdoors over the course of the season, negating the need to constantly re-tape due to peeling or splitting like many other lower quality tapes.

We strongly recommend its use for club gliders - no more whistling or flapping tape!

Bowlus Maxi Gap Seal Tape was created by Michael Bowlus. It has a great reputation as a fantastic gap seal tape. It is extremely stretchy polyethylene tape which allows it to follow complex curves - like the perpendicular (no fillet) joint around the leading edge of the wing root  - although no tape can form to every curve. This tape utilizes UV protection so that is lasts longer in the sun than other products. That is very important for gliders that remain rigged for long periods of time - especially if they sit in the sun all the time. The tape is designed to stay in place and not split even when you take off from an airfield with high temperatures, fly at high altitude in low temperature environments and land back in high temperatures.
