Presco Texas Roll Flagging Features
Well-known in the industry as "Texas Flagging", this roll flagging is colorful and highly visible. Also called Fluorescent Tape, or Marking Tape by some. Presco solid-color roll surveyors flagging is the most durable, longest-lasting outdoor roll flagging available anywhere thanks to proprietary formulations and annealing. Don't waste your money on cheap roll flagging that stretches, fades and cracks. Presco Flagging has added plasticizers that yield maximum physical properties increasing tensile strength. Presco Roll Flagging is the most asked for flagging by industry professionals in land surveying, construction, forestry, logging, mining, geophysics, utilities and oil exploration.

The story begins in 1942, when a young Texas entrepreneur, Robert "Earl" McMackin, developed and patented the stadia rod to help seismologists search for oil. Precision Specialties Company (currently known as Presco) was born the following year in Dallas, Texas. By 1950, Precision Specialties Company patented portable breast reels and multiple tools for the down-hole handling of dynamite, continuing the innovation that started the company.
While servicing companies in the geological field, additional needs for other quality supplies became apparent. Earl and his son, Edwin "Ed" McMackin, began purchasing slit cheese cloth, one of the first materials used for roll flagging. Eventually, non-woven materials gave way to vinyl as the roll flagging material of choice. Other marking product requests continued to reach Earl, products such as wire marking flags. Precision Specialties purchased slitting equipment and in 1956 began slitting finished roll flagging for their customers.
In 1966, Ed and his son, Waymon, began exploring ways to increase the efficiencies of their marking product manufacturing line. Desires to vertically integrate lead them to investigate internally producing PVC film for roll flagging and stake flags. In 1975, the first sellable pound of vinyl film was extruded by Precision Specialties Company. The vertical integration allowed material formulation changes, which improved the performance characteristics of the stake flags and roll flagging. As the market recognized the company's ability to produce customized requests, Ed began to recognize a need from surveyors for a more 'industrial' roll flagging. To distinguish the new superior grade of roll flagging from the competition, Ed embossed the state of Texas throughout the film. It came to be known as Texas Grade Roll Flagging and today, Texas Roll Flagging remains the preferred choice among professional surveyors.

Bought a couple of rolls locally until I could get to EGPS, instantly regretted it! Paid lots more and probably threw it in the trash!
Holds up well outdoors in all weather conditions.
