Are you looking for strong, reliable leather furniture repair tape? JVCC REPAIR-2HD is a polyethylene-coated cloth duct tape that's been coated with an extremely strong adhesive. It's specially designed to be a highly effective vinyl and leather upholstery repair tape. It can be used for rips, tears, cover or patch concealment, arts & crafts projects, color coding, camping and many other uses.
At FindTape, we offer this leather and vinyl duct tape in 2-inch and 3-inch rolls (1.88 inches and 2.83 inches actual). The rolls are 15 feet (5 yards) long, which is a handy size so you have enough to do your repairs, but not more than you need.
The HD (Heavy Duty) designation means that it is rewound from Polyken 223 duct tape, providing 90 ounces per inch of peel adhesion. We recommend cutting the tape with a razor blade for a clean cut, although it can also be torn by hand. It's available in various colors to match your projects.
JVCC REPAIR-2HD is made from polyethylene-coated cloth duct tape, so it has a shinier finish than matte tape. If you want a matte appearance, see the JVCC REPAIR-1 tape, which is manufactured from vinyl-coated cloth gaffers tape.
- Tears, rips (sofa arms, car convertible tops, etc.)
- Patch or cover concealment
- Color coding
- Arts & craft projects
- Emergency kits
- Camping (repair tents, tarps, backpacks)
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. If it still does not stick, then you might need one of the liquid seat repair products available on the market instead (these types of products would also be less noticeable than a tape repair).
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 polyethylene coated cloth coated with an aggressive adhesive.
A good way to prolong the life of the patch is to apply an adhesive primer such as 3M 94 although that typically discolors leather and vinyl surfaces so you really need to be careful when applying a primer or adhesive promoter to make sure you are only using it on the area of the surface that the tape will cover. Made in the U.S.
