Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

Product Description

Most often used as school bus seat repair tape, reliable JVCC Leather and Vinyl Repair Tape (JVCC-REPAIR-1) can be used for a wide range of additional applications, including as a reliable leather repair tape. You can use this tape for leather and vinyl sofa seat repair as well as patching and cover concealment, arts and crafts and more. Because it is made of vinyl-coated cloth, it is easy to tear by hand, but you will get the cleanest possible cut with a razor blade. Each roll of colored vinyl repair tape comes in 10 colors - black, brown, burgundy, dark blue, dark green, gray, olive drab, red, tan and white - all of which offer a matte finish. If you prefer a shinier appearance, you may prefer JVCC REPAIR-2HD, which is constructed from polyethylene-coated cloth.

Note: We always recommend testing this tape on your specific surface in a small, inconspicuous area before applying it to a larger project. Because many seating surfaces are made with detergents, polishes and surfactants, they may prevent pressure sensitive adhesives from forming a bond. If the tape does not adhere, try cleaning the substrate with a damp cloth and allowing the surface to dry quickly. If it still does not bond, you may need to use a liquid seat repair product.

Product Applications:

  • School bus seat repair
  • Repairing and patching vinyl sofas and seats
  • Cover concealment
  • Color-coding
  • Arts and crafts projects

Please Read

Many seating surfaces have accumulated oils, detergents, polishes, and miscellaneous other surfactants that will prevent pressure sensitive adhesive tapes from forming a bond. Please try testing the surface with any available adhesive tape (masking, duct, etc.) prior to purchasing this product to see if this could possibly work for you. If that other tape does not adhere you can try cleaning the substrate first with a damp cloth and then allowing to dry completely; but if it still does not stick then you might need one of the liquid seat repair products available on the market instead.

Application Tips

  • Always use a razor to cut a piece off. Tearing by hand leaves a rougher edge which allows the edges to be more vulnerable to rolling up. Even scissors have a hard time cutting through it as cleanly as a razor blade since it is heavy duty vinyl coated cloth coated with an aggressive adhesive.
  • A good way to prolong the amount of time it will stay down before its having to be replaced is to apply a small amount of wax on top of the edges which helps reduce friction.
  • Remember gaffers tape is designed to not leave sticky adhesive residue behind like a duct tape would; however, it may still pull up loose debris, finish, etc. from a substrate it is applied to depending on many conditions such as length of time applied, chemicals used to clean the substrate, and the composition of the substrate itself (as any adhesive tape would).
Made in the U.S.A.

AlertRoll Sizes/Widths:

Please note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice- free. Tape rolls are typically cut to standard tape industry metric-cut sizes - or approx 5% narrower than the nominal size (i.e. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered).

Please contact us to inquire about pricing for full-cut widths (e.g. a 6 inch roll cut to exactly 152mm instead of 144mm).

JVCC REPAIR-1 Leather & Vinyl Repair Tape [Gaffers Tape]
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).
natural rubber
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.
acrylic
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.
silicone
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
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
