Meltex seaming tapes

Problem: stopping rain from penetrating convertible car soft tops is a technical challenge. The tape has to stick to the interior fabric, withstanding regular folding and unfolding. The tape has to be extensible to avoid puckering. It also has to hide the seam and look neat.

Solution: by taking a Polyamide basecloth and coating it with our Meltex hotmelt, we ensure perfect water tightness. A biased cut gives stretch to enable the tape to follow curves without puckering. This fabric will adhere to dry fabrics such as polyester, polyamide, cotton….and also coated fabrics (PVC, compact and microporous PU, neoprene, leather….). Can be slit to order.
