Description

This is a double-sided mylar film with acrylic 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. The "Basting Tape Selection Tips" PDF document below details all the materials this basting tape can be used on.

3/8-inch width is ideal for 1/2-inch hems, the standard hem width, to minimize any exposed tape after hemming.

Pro Tip: This item should not be used for marine canvas fabrics like Sunbrella® and Top Notch®. Instead, use Seamstick 3/8" for Canvas and Upholstery (part #129) — 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.

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

Better than pins

Wow! Sure wish I knew this existed over the last 40 sewing project years ! Fantastic- especially for the projects where using pins is just not an option! Thank you for having your videos and wonderful instructions… That’s how I learned about this product!

Works Great!

I build prototype back packs and use this seam tape to hold components in place during the sewing process. It works very well. I love it.

I use this for cordura work - tactical gear, etc and it works flawlessly! I only wish I had discovered it a year ago. Highly recommend.
