Preservation Tapes contain ultra violet inhibitors and are designed to be stuck directly to the hull and not leave an adhesive residue when removed*.
* IMPORTANT - Although Preservation Tape is designed not to leave a residue, the adhesion is very strong to most surfaces.
As with any adhesive, it is possible that the top layer of paint or finish can come off painted surfaces or woods. Clean area thoroughly and test a small area before applying to the entire surface.
Clear tape is NOT recommended to be left in place for more than 60 days, as an adhesive residue will result.
