What tape to use on the brown waterproof foamboard?


New member
I am adding tape to reinforce a wing, and tested some Up&Up (Target brand) packing tape on the brown surface of the board, and it did NOT want to stick to it. Granted, it's not great packing tape to begin with, but is there a recommended brand or type of packing tape that reliably sticks well?

For making the wing stronger I use fibre reinforced tape as recommended by @Hai-Lee . Otherwise genuine scotch branded heavy duty tape has stuck fine on my kits. You can key the surface with a fine sand paper too. Things stick better on the brown stuff when it’s scuffed. A medium Scotchbrite pad is good for that.
