PE 901 UV-Resistant Marine Hull Preservation Tape

9.0 mil, UV-resistant polyethylene film tape used for protection during marine transportation and temporary outdoor boat storage. Designed with a synthetic rubber-based pressure sensitive adhesive, PE 901 marine hull preservation tape maintains a watertight seal, even in the most demanding conditions, and removes cleanly with little to no residue.

Features & Applications

  • UV-resistant polyethylene film tape
  • Excellent conformability and flexibility
  • Clean removal*
  • Maintains a watertight seal
  • *Although hull preservation tape is designed to not leave residue, we recommend testing a small area before applying to the entire surface to avoid the possibility of a top layer of paint or finish removal
