2 layer Seam Sealing Tape (also know as Double Layer Seam Sealing Tape) is a commonly used heat tape applied over fabric sewn seams to prevent water transfer and air passing through.
2 Layer Seam Tapes are an excellent solution for the seam sealing of a waterproof membrane. This makes them an ideal solution for high performance outdoor clothing including waterproof jackets and waterproof trousers.
Our 2 layer seam sealing tapes help to lock in the seam and prevent water and air penetration. On a rain jacket for example, this helps to make the garment both waterproof AND windproof rather than just weather resistant.
Why does a garment seam need seam sealing tape?
Whether a seam joint is between a jacket sleeve and the jackets main body panels or two panels of a camping tent (for example), it still creates an easy entry point that water and wind can penetrate. To prevent this weathering element from entering, seam sealing tape can be applied to seal up these vulnerable stitch holes and make the fabric seam waterproof. Ideal for high performance waterproof clothing designed to protect the wearer from high winds and heavy rain.
With an excellent adhesion to fabrics, 2 layer seam sealing tapes have become a commonly used solution to create a 100% waterproofed seams for outdoor clothing.
You can also find 2 layer seam sealing tape used on various levels of PPE solutions.
