Rig Tape and other specialized Marine Tapes
Rigging tape is similar to electrical tape in that it is a vinyl coated tape with similar adhesive properties. However, it is imperveous to weather and abrasion, and when applying it, rig tape tears much cleaner than electrical tape.
Similar to rig tape in its vinyl protection, chafing tape is designed to protect dock lines, mooring lines, rigging, etc. Developed to withstand salt water. It is 12 mils thick, yet soft and pliable, and will not crack. Hatch Cover tape is extra thick foam tape that was specifically developed to seal out weather and ocean elements on the rim of hatch covers. It is pressure sensative.
