Combining patented technology and high quantity materials, No More Slugs and Snails Flexi Copper Adhesive Tape has transformed the basic copper barrier tape into a new generation product that not only creates a more effective barrier at deterring slugs and snails, but also has visual appeal.

It’s well known that copper is an effective natural deterrent for slugs and snails as it generates a mild electrical tingle when it comes into contact with their slime. However, through extensive testing Tecman discovered traditional copper slug tape does have its flaws. If it’s not wide enough it won’t create an effective barrier and the rigid copper tape can be difficult to apply to uneven surfaces like plant pots.

The result of poorly applied copper tape is more than just a matter of aesthetics. If the adhesive doesn’t have 100% surface contact, the gaps attract dirt and moisture and can compromise the adhesive strength and longevity of the barrier. Also, quite often with traditional copper slug tapes, the adhesive is of low grade, so does not last throughout the seasons.

To a solve many of these common issues Tecman developed a patented die cutting process and specialist adhesive to create a new generation of copper slug tape;

Firstly, it’s up to 15mm wider than conventional products creating a larger, more effective barrier and the clever flexi construction makes it much easier to apply around pots and planters. No More Slugs and Snails Flexi Copper Adhesive Tape.

The striped copper and flexible adhesive allows the tape to mould and conform to uneven surfaces and awkward shapes, providing a clean, neat barrier that eliminates ugly creases. The flexi construction helps the adhesive gain 100% surface contact, creating a longer lasting barrier. Plus the specialist adhesive has been developed to prolong adhesion strength to pots and planters and bond to almost any surface, yet can still be removed without leaving sticky residue.

Finally, as well as creating a more effective barrier at deterring slugs and snails, the patterned copper construction actually enhances pots and planters and looks great within the garden. This is a major plus point for gardeners that want an effective solution that doesn’t compromise the aesthetics in their garden.

Tecman have launched a short demo video which highlights the features of No More Slugs and Snails Flexi Copper Adhesive Tape compared to traditional copper slug tape.
