It is very easy. You can choose to use an entire piece or cut pieces into any shape or size. Once you have the right size, you simply remove the release paper, place the tape where you want it to be, and then add pressure with the install tool (a credit card will work if you lost the tool). Give it about 5 minutes and the 100+ year adhesion should begin!
Shredder Tape is made from a Red List free (completely non-toxic) tape produce by a German manufacturer. It is made from recycled plastic, a proprietary windproof/waterproof/breathable membrane, and an acrylic adhesive tested for 100+ years of adhesion. Simply put, it is the best tape in the world.
Great question. In short, water is the destroyer of all things and water will always win. Being breathable (aka vapor open) allows the tape to release water in a vapor state so it doesn't harm your gear. This is particularly important with repairs like surfboard dings since Shredder Tape allows you to keep surfing right away, but also allows your board to dry so it doesn't rot out.
Extremely stoked. It can pretty much fix anything and purchasing one pack allows us to preserve an acre of primary rainforest, which offsets the carbon impact of your purchase by 10x or more.
Not really sure why a return would be needed. Did you really not find anything worth fixing? But yes, we will provide a 50% refund and you will be responsible for return shipping. We cannot offer more than 50% since the money you paid will already have been allocated to protecting primary rainforest.
Happy to provide more info. Transparency is the name of the game. With every pack purchased we donate $3 to Rainforest Trust, which is a non-profit that works with local populations to permanently preserve primary rainforest. The average cost of an acre purchased is $3 so that is why we provide that amount.
Ok, so now we need to consider the total lifecycle carbon impact of your purchase vs how much carbon is saved per year with an acre of primary rainforest.
Due to the high carbon impact of shipping, each pack of Shredder Tape delivered is about 3,000 lbs of CO2 on average.
Each acre of primary rainforest sequesters around 60,000 lbs of CO2 per year.
So in the first year, the acre of rainforest saves 20x the carbon impact of your purchase. The even better news is this acre of rainforest is permanently conserved and will sequester over 6,000,000 lbs of CO2 in the next 100 years along with supporting the livelihood of local populations.
