[NAFEX] Parafilm

I was taught to graft using Parafilm - and use it on virtually everything I
But, as Hector indicated, tensile strength is not its strong point - and it
will degrade somewhat as UV light affects it, so, I always wrap with a
budding rubber in addition - though with fast-callusing stuff like
apples/pears, sometimes I just over-wrap the graft union with a couple of
layers of masking tape.

Does anyone have comments / instructions of any kind for using Parafilm in
grafting?  I've never used / attempted to use it, and someone has offered
to give me some to try.  I'd really appreciate any input or experience that
anyone has.
