Ronstan and PSP Marine Tapes announced Ronstan USA as distributing agents for the full range of PSP Marine Tapes in America.

Ronstan produce and distribute a range of products in America. Recognizing that PSP tapes offer a fully developed product range, with sales throughout Europe and beyond, the two companies have formed a distribution agreement within the U.S. The range of products are now on sale from many chandlery shops selling tapes developed for specific requirements for power craft , dinghies and sailing yachts of all sizes.

PSP Marine tapes offers an array of products, most recently adding both Rig Wrap to their offering. Rig wrap was produced in order to efficiently protect expensive race sails from wear by reducing friction on contact points of the rig.

Unlike anti chafe, rig wrap is supplied self-wound (without a liner) and will stretch to coil wrap around standing rigging, terminals, forestay, backstay, spinnaker poles, spreaders and any other areas of contact, preventing wear to sails and friction to sheets and guys etc. The tape will stretch and coil wrap around all areas on board. This tape has also been referred to as ‘Millionaire’s Tape’ as it was previously very expensive and available only through the trade and to professional race crews in long industrial trade length rolls. The friction free surface allows sails or sheets under pressure to slide effortlessly past, reducing wear or damage. The tape is clear/opaque, so there are no unsightly bright colors drawing attention to tape protected areas.
