[NAFEX] first time grafting with parafilm

I decided to try parafilm this season and used it on some apple grafts I was
doing this week. The strips are perforated every 3" or so, which I find
annoying because it takes 2 strips to cover my average graft. I wonder if
non-perforated is available.
I doubt this stuff is preferable over Gashell, my Swiss pruning compound
available from OESCO (Orchard Supply Co. in Conway Mass) for grafting pears
and apples, because they don't tend to dry out but I thought I'd try it to
see if it increases % of takes. Grafting with the compound is a bit
quicker. I have to admit to being a bit concerned about buds pushing
through parafilm although that concern is irrational given all the testimony
I've read. I wonder if the buds could push through the Gashell?
