Parafilm is a thermoplastic film, very easy to work with,
self-sealing to itself, photodegrading, and thin enough, when
stretched(3-4 times its original dimensions) that enlarging buds and
shoots push right out through it - even multiple layers.
The manufacturer has come out with a Parafilm Grafting Tape, but I've
never used it, as I'm quite comfortable with the good ol' Parafilm M
- and I have ready access to it. I think there may be some other
NAFEX folks who've used the Grafting Tape formulation - perhaps
they'll weigh in with their experiences.
Here's some detailed info on Parafilm:
