Buddy Tape

This self adhesive biodegradable tape creates a waterproof covering for the bud. It is easy and quick to use as the rolls are perforated, so no cutting is necessary.

Features & Benefits:

  1. ELASTICITY: Buddy Tape can be stretched up to 8 times its original length. This allows small pieces to be used for the application and ensures a tight grip on the bud or graft. Elasticity also means that the tape expands as the plant grows.
  2. SELF-ADHESION: Buddy Tape is not adhesive in its normal form but becomes self-adhesive when stretched. This allows quick application with no need for tying knots.
  3. WATER-PROOFING: The film has a wax content to keep it waterproof, so the bud or graft will not dry out, but air can pass through the permeable tape allowing the bud to breathe. The wax content also means that use of Buddy Tape can eliminate the need for waxing in covered areas.
  4. COMPLETE BUD COVER: the Buddy Tape is pierced by the bud as it begins to grow, but the bud wound remains completely covered. This offers protection against infection and insects.
  5. BIODEGRADABLE: The tape biodegrades naturally in 5 to 6 months due to exposure to sunlight, eliminating the need for tape removal. 

In order to get the most out of Buddy Tape, we recommend that it is stretched gradually as it is applied. Although there is a natural tendency to stretch the film to full length and then simply wrap it around, this can cause the tape to become stringy which means the tape may cut into growing plants.
