Stretching reduces the width about 35%, thus 3" will pull to about 2" width around a sharp contour, and 2" will pull to approximately 1.3" width. Bias tapes (weave pattern 45" to the edge) are suggested for installation over compound surfaces such as around wingtips and tail surfaces. Bias tape will stretch to conform to the required contour without heat shrinking edges or cutting and notching to remove excess fabric.
