No matter how tough your kit is during climbing, hiking, expeditions and camping, it can still fall short when it comes to the elements and flora - with branches, thorns, rocks and even barbed wire easily catching and snagging waterproof jackets or trousers no matter the denier. When braving more extreme weather conditions repair kits are essential for preparing for damage on the go.
Our Polythene Coated Cloth Tape is a high-grade cloth tape with a pressure sensitive natural rubber adhesive, making it strong and hard wearing for more vigorous movements outdoors. Whilst many repair kits come with circular and square patches that can cover smaller holes, tape allows for larger tears that are more likely to leak.
Types of possible applications for repair
- Waterproof jackets
- Waterproof trousers
- Sleeping bags
- Rucksacks and bags
- Map cases
Sometimes called ‘Gaffer Tape’, Polythene Coated Cloth Tape’s pressure sensitive self adhesive backing is designed to adhere to any fabric and provide a waterproof bond with its solvent-based adhesive.
Solvent-based Adhesive can offer extraordinary chemical resistance, making them well-suited for use in environments where exposure is possible, such as the outdoors. Solvent adhesive tape can also function at low and high temperatures making them extremely versatile. They are strong and have a superior shear and peel strength.
As the tape doesn’t require heat, water or solvents to activate the adhesive, it means that it’s tacky at room temperature and can easily be applied by varying degrees of pressure with a hand or finger.
