Details

This is a double-sided mylar film adhesive that bonds well on smooth Dacron® sailcloth, nylon and vinyl. It is strong, neat and nearly invisible. Use basting tape instead of pins on projects for more accurate, even hems and water-resistant seams. Basting tapes are left permanently in place and are invisible. If any needle gumming occurs, intermittently clean the needle with an alcohol swab or an adhesive remover.

Pro Tip: This item should not be used for marine canvas fabrics like Sunbrella® and Top Notch®. Instead, use Seamstick 1/2" for Canvas and Upholstery (part #104984) — it is designed to stick to these fabrics much better. We also recommend using the Seamstick for Canvas and Upholstery when installing clear vinyl window material into marine performance fabrics. The "Basting Tape Selection Tips" PDF document below details all the materials this basting tape can be used on.

Note: Always test the adhesive bond strength for your material and application.

Fabulous stufff! I just made a bedspread with welting and it shaved tons of time off the sewing!

perfect basting tape

by -

Essential for holding fabric together for sewing, this basting tape has the perfect amount of sticky-ness for sail making and never gums the needle.

This was my first go with using the Seamstick for Sailmaking and Vinyl. I had used the more expensive version recommended for canvas prior. I use this when working with scuba webbing and Mil-W-55301webbings and just needed something to hold the two together till I got it sewn. I rolled the dice on the cheaper version of Seamstick and was pleasantly surprised to find that it worked well. This is definitely not as sticky (gummy) as the canvas version. It is slightly thinner and doesn't quiet press down into the nooks and grip as strongly. If you're working with a porous material and really needed it to stick, you would be best serve with the canvas option. If you just need some assistance temporarily tacking something in place, this version works well and is half the cost.
