GLUETEX Hotmelt-Adhesive Tapes are suitable for bonding different technical textiles for e.g.solar protection or large format commercial graphics.
The tapes can be activated by ultrasonic, hot air or high frequency technology and enable welding of non thermoplastic fabrics.
The bonded seams are very strong and approved for outdoor use.Advantages of glueing in comparison to regular sewing:
- Full seam width is bonded while sewing has point to point connection only
- Waterproof seam, no stitch holes
- No penetration of water and dirt into the seam
- lower thickness of the seam, because of the pressure applied while bonding. Therefore less roll up wrinkles
- UV-stabile tapes ensure longer lifetime
- Better visual appearance
