Default Does gum tape break down in polyester resin?

I'm a big noob with this stuff. I am about to attempt my 3rd infusion ever and I was wondering if gum tape is okay to use to hold down my spiral tube. Or is it bad to let it contact the resin?

Hi Redrunner
Use masking tape, if you use gum tape it stops you adjusting the bag when pulling vacuum.
