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.

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.

Storage of Grafting / Budding Tapes / Strips
Always keep grafting tapes / strips out of direct exposure to sunlight or UV rays and store under ambient temperature and in closed containers, until ready to use. Exposure to UV radiations will initiate degradation of tapes / strips.
