I used 3M 45 to get the strapping tape to stick to the EPP and it is sticking fine.
Go to Walmart and you can find Duck Brand Duct tape in all kinds of colors. It would be too wide for the LE, and it is a touch heavy, but it sticks very well to EPP. And I doubt it will ever crack. I use their white duct tape to cover my gear on the bottom of my swift II. It also makes pretty good hinge tape cut in small strips.
