German term or phrase: Duplierband
This is to do with making some sort of silicone model. I'm just wondering if Duplierband is simply duplication tape?

General note about helpful context

GENERAL NOTE ABOUT HELPFUL CONTEXT ---- Whenever possible, it helps your “would-be helpers” to see (A) all or most of the RELEVANT SENTENCE or short passage verbatim and (B) the GENERAL CONTEXT (e.g., plumbing vs. electrical wiring). (C) Take care, of course, not to reveal PROPRIETARY / CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION in this information, e.g. by neutering names etc. --- (D) Sometimes it also helps to know the GEOGRAPHY (source &/or target country), (E) TARGET AUDIENCE (e.g., radiologist vs. medical physicist), and/or (F) the PURPOSE of the communication (informational vs. motivational, humor or satire etc.) ----
This note about context is in no way meant to be personal. Instead, it's an attempt to improve the GENERAL quality of the support that can be provided through KudoZ by enhancing the GENERAL quality of the questions. I composed the note for that purpose and will post it again as occasions arise. Hoffentlich wird mir das nicht übel genommen. :)
