Duck Brand Carpet Seaming Tape is a single-sided fiberglass tape with an adhesive backing on one side. The fiberglass carrier on the tape is moisture and mildew resistant. Duck Carpet Seaming Tape can be used both indoors and outdoors. The tape helps to quickly join carpet pieces together without special tools or irons - the tape is self-stick and there is no liner to remove. Recommended for permanent applications.
- Position carpet as desired, butting together edges to be seamed.
- Fold back edges and begin to unroll tape into the exposed seaming area non-adhesive side to the floor. Caution: the adhesive on the tape is extremely aggressive and may become permanent with initial contact to carpet backing. Be certain to center the tape correctly as you begin.
- Continue to unroll tape several feet at a time pressing seam edges back down into adhesive firmly for good adhesion.
Made in the U.S.
* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

QUESTION: Is this tape double sided? Some reviews say double sided and some say sticky on one side only.
ANSWER: Carpet seaming tape is single-sided.

QUESTION: Would this work repair tear in carpet from a pet?
ANSWER: Thank you for your question! It depends on whether or not you still have the 2 pieces of carpet. If so, then this tape is applied underneath the carpet to seam the 2 pieces together. If a piece of the carpet has been torn or ripped out, this will not work.

QUESTION: How do you get the backing off?! Any tips?! I’m struggling...
ANSWER: Thank you for your question! The carpet seaming tape has adhesive on only one side of the tape. This tape is meant to be applied to the back of the carpet to seam 2 pieces together. If you want to tape down your rug or carpet to the floor, We recommend trying one of our carpet tapes.

QUESTION: Do you have to use an iron with this tape?
ANSWER: No. Just place the tape down and peel the backing off, then place the carpet or rug on top.

QUESTION: I have a small tear at the edge of an oriental carpet. Will this work to mend this tear by appling to the back side to hold the torn edges together?
ANSWER: The carpet seaming tape would be perfect for mending your rug.
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
