Polyguard is a self-adhesive white 100% polyester felt tape designed to provide a soft barrier between the greenhouse or animal shelter frame and the polythene cladding. By reducing abrasion and excessive temperatures at the film/frame contact points, both extended life and reduced maintenance of the covering can be expected.
A high contact acrylic adhesive is used on Polyguard and this adheres well to steel, aluminium and timber frames.

Redpath Patchbond is a permanent repair system for flexible membranes such as greenhouse films and animal shelter coverings. Patchbond's aggressive acrylic based adhesive is applied to patch material the same as the membrane about to be repaired. This then is applied to the damaged area on one side or both. Patchbond will adhere readily to the covering and it will resist UV degradation, water, temperature fluctuations well.

Batten tape is typically used on singleskin greenhouse and animal shelters where the cladding is to be retained by isolating battens onto the framework. This tape adheres to the batten and also the top surface of the cladding when the batten is placed onto the cladding. Thus when the batten is screwed or nailed in place the batten seals around the screw/nail puncture holes and prevents them from leakage and also side "shear" caused by wind load on the covering.
