The adhesive is designed to provide a high-performance solution when adhering to textiles. TexTape is approximately 23 mils thick and is a great outdoor all-weather tape. It is UV resistant and has a high initial tack and wetting properties. TexTape creates hems for banners, flags, and other fabrics without any sewing equipment and labour.
Not only does double-sided fabric tape work well for outdoor banners, but it’s perfect for indoor banners as well. Since it doesn’t require sewing, setting up indoor banners at your event has never been easier. It also works perfectly for hems or pole pockets. Additionally, TexTape is available in rolls of several sizes (9mm, 19mm, and 25mm) making it easy to choose the perfect size for your needs.
One of the most versatile tools you can have when working with banners or other types of fabric is double-sided fabric tape. Banner Ups TexTape is a great solution for hemming fabric. TextTape is different than other types of adhesive tape because the adhesive is high tac. It’s designed to be used to hem the edges of fabric signs without having to sew.
It can be used to hem banners, clothes, curtains, or any other fabric-based product. It can also be used to cover up stitching, connect fabrics together, or repair small tears in the fabric. In some cases, it can even be used to attach lace or appliques. With many different sizes, weights, and widths available, there are double-sided fabric banner tapes for any need!
TexTape is easy to work with, so let’s talk about how to get the best results from TexTape.
Hem tape works best when the fabric has been recently cleaned, but do not use fabric softener. This can interfere with the adhesive. Also, the fabric should be ironed to create the cleanest and smoothest bond, assuming the fabric is iron-safe. If not, try your best to flatten it out; otherwise, wrinkles could become permanent once the tape is attached.
Before using the tape, you need to prepare the hems. Measure out the desired width and be sure to build in a little extra allowance so that the hem tape will be fully covered. If you leave too much extra fabric on the hem, it can always be trimmed off later.
Cut the double-sided fabric tape to the same length as the hem and add around 1/2 inch so you can fold it over the edge. Then insert the tape into the hem area. It should be fully in between the two sides so that no tape is visible poking out of the hem.
Fold and press the TexTape along the fabric edges. No need to use a iron to heat the tape. It’s that simple.
