Edge Tear Resistance-What Does It Mean For Console Labeling?

tape with sharpie markerOne of the often overlooked features of Shurtape P724 is something called “edge tear resistance”.  This little understood tape quality is one of the things that makes this such a great product for labeling your sound or lighting control console.

Tape placed on a console is constantly under pressure along its edges from the operator’s fingers as they move faders or adjust other controls.  This pressure from the side makes many tapes, like masking tape, prone to tearing and bubbling as it stretches.

Edge tear resistance means that the tape has strong edges that will continue to adhere to your console surface until you are ready to remove them.

Just another reason why Shurtape 724 is the best console labeling tape you can buy.
