The newly launched Fabric Bond Tape is to serve as a replacement for the old SS71 and uniseam tape. The Fabric Bond FR tape is a newly developed tape to use on FR materials only. FR fabrics are used for specific requirements, and the Fabric Bond FR tape meets those requirements of the FR materials.

The Fabric Bond Tape uses the best in bonding technology to create clean seams while supporting the three principles of welding success – heat, speed, and pressure, according to the manufacturer. Further, the polyurethane-based welding tape can be used for several purposes including heating seal seams with Impulse, Hot Wedge, or Hot Air welding equipment. The tape can be used with vinyl, polyester, and acrylic fabrics, creating smooth, watertight seams and eliminating the need for thread matching.

The Fabric Bond FR Tape, on the other hand, is designed for use with fire-retardant fabrics only. The white fabric bond tape like its other counterpart also uses top bonding technology to create clean, watertight seams and removes the need for thread matching. It also supports the three principles of welding, which are heat, speed, and pressure. The 7/8" tape is suitable for the industrial awning or marine projects and can be used with Hot Wedge, Impulse, or Hot Air welding equipment.

“The two tapes are most commonly used when welding awnings and marine products, such as acrylics. The tape is fed between the two pieces of material, creating a perfectly welded seam. No sewing experience required with this technology and specially designed tape,” the company reports.
