Tarp Repair Tape Works On Almost Anything
A Tennessee company says its "Bale Patch and Closure Tape" can be used on just about anything including synthetic tarps, bulk bags, cotton bagging, tents, fabric structures and irrigation tubing.
  "It was originally developed to patch plastic wrap on cotton bales but we found a lot more applications for it," says Don James of Fabric Sales Co., Inc.. "It's a woven, polyethylene product that has a very strong adhesive. You can even use it to patch a swimming pool, putting it on right under the water. I have a metal horse trough that had a hole in it from rust, and I used this tape to stop it from leaking over a year ago. It's working great."
  The white tape costs $94.75 per case but there are discounts for bulk orders. A case of 4-in. wide tape has 15 rolls, a case of 6-in. tape has 10 rolls, and a case of 12-in. tape has five rolls.
  Fabric Sales recently introduced one 18 by 18-in. adhesive patch made from heavier woven fabric. These patches have release paper on the back and come in cases of 10 of any one color (black, white, clear or silver). The price is $50 per case.
  "The patch is intended for a more permanent repair of shelters and heavier fabrics," says Jarrad Mallard of Fabric Sales Co., Inc. Other types of repair and closure tapes available include a yellow, brown or clear "film" style and a 3-in. black, blue, clear, white or silver tarp repair tape.
