Product Description

Perfect for temporary carpet hold-down and aggressive adhesion for mounting in machining, conventions, hospitality, entertainment, and more, Scapa 174 Double-Sided Cloth Carpet Tape leaves no residue on most surfaces. It's a high-quality woven cotton cloth tape featuring an aggressive natural rubber adhesive on both sides (AKA double-coated) which provides excellent adhesion (50 ounces per inch) without stubborn residue. The two-sided cloth tape is supplied on an easy-release polyethylene white liner and has a high shear resistance.

Scapa 174 carpet tape is available in multiple widths, lengths, and quantities to meet your particular job and budget requirements. Please note that we always recommend testing tape in an inconspicuous area to ensure that it adheres properly and doesn't pull up substrates, debris or finishes from the flooring surface.

Works quite well - versitle!
Scapa 174 Double-Sided Cloth Carpet Tape
Originally used to hold paper targets on Archery stop. Works to my expectation. Have also used it for binding "no slip" carpet backing to runners throughout the house; works great and was quite east to install. Tip: separating the vinyl cover from the tap is very difficult (just getting a corner up is the tough part...peeling it off is easy). Suggest keeping a short overlap with the vinyl and the tape so you can remove the tape from the roll at the same time you strip the vinyl backing..then you cut the tape (not the backing) ...just put a piece of paper between the tape and the backing that is on the roll; that way it is easy to separate the backing next time you need a segment of tape from the roll.
Made in the USA
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.
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
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
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
