With a heat gun, the tape will stick well. Use a roller also. It is working fine.

Great product if its applied carefully. This was the second time that Id ordered and used 3M 8561, a product recommended by the manufacturer of my carbon fibre, ground adjustable prop...knowing nothing about its application, the first time was not a happy experience, particularly at the propeller tips where curvature resulted in nasty trimming cuts and creases. The second time however, I began by aligning and sticking the center of the tape to the leading edge of the blade at the spinner, and while holding the other end and gently stretching the tape, using my other hand, starting at the spinner, gently pressed the tape around the prop blade...smoothing it on carefully to avoid trapping any air under the tape...gradually working outward towards the tip. Try to keep the centerline of the tape Where the leading edge of the blade begins to curve, I increase the tension in the tape to really stretch it along the curvature of the leading edge stretching will prevent any creases in the tape. When I get to the end of the blade, I stretch and pinch the tape around the tip of the blade, trim with a sharp knife.

Looks effective as prop Tape. Adhered to curved wooden Culver propeller well, but havent flown yet to see if it stays put. Giving it a day or two to stick permanently, I hope. Watched a Youtube video to gain a little insight in how to manipulate it onto the leading edge of the prop, and if I did it for a living, I could get good at it......
