Seam Tape
Adhesive tape applied to seams to provide a variety of benefits.

Seam Tape

Seam tape is typically comprised of a heat activated adhesive layer, laminated to either a fabric substrate or a polyurethane backer. Seam tape is applied using specialty machines, which use hot air to melt the adhesive, then sandwich the tape and fabric between roller wheels which cool and bond the adhesive layer and fabric together. Seam tape is used in 7mesh products for a variety of reasons; weatherproofing, reinforcement and clean finishing of seams. On water and windproof garments the tape seals the needle holes, creating a weatherproof seam. In other garments it allows the use of a narrower seam allowance, covering and reinforcing the stitching, leaving the seam laying flat, and making the garment less bulky and more comfortable to wear.
