Grafting & budding is a horticultural technique whereby tissues of plants are joined to continue their growth together. For a successful graft, the vascular cambium tissues of the stock and scion plants must be in contact with each other for a specified time. Rubber grafting & budding tapes are widely used for this purpose.

Elastic Nature
Grafting / budding tapes are highly elastic and hence offer a tight and intimate grip on the graft areas where they are wound. The grafting tapes / strips expand as the plant grows thereby eliminating the chances of ’necking-in’ into the stem as seen with thermoplastic grafting tapes. The tapes / strips can be stretched to many times of its length and hence relatively less material is required per graft.

Permeability
The grafting tapes offer selective permeability to air allowing the buds to breathe, while preventing moisture to escape thereby providing hydration to the grafted areas.

Graft Protection
When the buds grow out, the budding tapes are penetrated, without breaking it thereby offering continued protection to the graft areas from infection or insect attack.

Advantages of bio-degradability
The tapes on exposure to the environment degrades naturally and falls off thereby eliminating labor costs on removal of the tapes. Since the tapes are made up of natural ingredients, it will degrades at a faster rate and gets absorbed into the soil.

Grafting tapes / strips – sizes
Length: 100 mm, 120 mm, 140 mm, 160 mm, 180 mm, 200 mm, 220 mm &  240mm
