DACRON WAVE LEECH TAPE Reduce wear and tear from leech flutter

Worn out mainsails are prone to leech breakdown, which results in leech flutter and creasing, dramatically reducing the efficient life of a mainsail. New from PSP Marine Tapes, is the Dacron Wave Tape, which is a self adhesive Dacron cloth edging, which is designed to be applied to the leech of the mainsail to help reduce flutter and breakdown.

The tape is easy to apply to a clean dry surface, by removing the backing strip and pressing the tape down firmly onto the leech of the sail. The tape becomes waterproof once the adhesive has set, normally within an hour at room temperature.
