Strong adhesive tape for pre-assembly steps
« on: August 06, 2018, 04:35:50 PM »
Hey all,

Need to bond 1000D-1000D face to face, face to rear side of fabric, and wrong side to smooth polyester seatbelt webbing.

Ideally for use in a dispenser gun. 1/2(12mm) or 3/4"(18mm) widths ideally.

Open to ideas, but this needs to be a permanent, ultra high tack bond, used for pre-assembly before sewing.

t.i.a.
Dan

Dan,
Will you be sewing through the tape?
Check out Sailrite and their seamstick product, I use the 3/8 wide for canvas, which is really sticky and can be sewed through.

3M ATG transfer tape.  It's double stick tape on a roll which is easily and precisely applied to a surface with their ATG 700 tapegun.  I burned up many rolls as a Michael's Arts and Crafts certified picture framer.  There are different grades and one of them is particularly tacky.  Check 3M converters and Amazon for available widths.  Widths up to 1" in 1/8" increments are common.

Take your chances with knockoffs.  3M ATG 700 guns run.

Hey Ryan,
I ordered up a Uline branded ATG gun (part #: H-4730 ) and some 1/2" rolls of tape (part #: S-3055 ) this afternoon. Will arrive tomorrow, so I will report as soon as I have tested it for my particular application.

Scott,
I have a roll of the 1/4" seamstick. Didn't seem to work all that well unfortunately. I'm using HLC 1000D, which has a very slick, quite glossy PU coating, so it might not grab as much to that as with a duller finish (like Brookwood soft stuff).

Thanks for the suggestions, I'm still open to others if anyone might have one

We are looking to start using transfer tape. Can someone recommend a model/part # and place to buy from? Looking for 1/2" and 1/4" wide options.

So far we have tried 3M Scotch 924 ATG Tape: 1/2 in and it works ok. Note that we ordered it from amazon and the sticky side was opposite to what the tape dispenser loading tutorial videos showed. I know there are a lot of counterfeit products on amazon so just wanted to give everyone the heads up on this.

Hoping to find a stronger tape that can hold nylon fabric together and is easy to sew through with a reliable source to purchase from in the united states.
