Bemis 3218 Sewfree® Tape

Bemis 3218 Adhesive Film Tape is a tough, fully reacted polyurethane adhesive film. It exhibits good adhesion to most fabrics, vinyls, foams, ABS and other substrates used in the automotive industry. Bemis 3218 Adhesive Film Tape is proven in applications that utilize DWR coated fabrics as well. 3218 has a low flow rate and stiff hand making it easier for handling and positioning. It is typically used on non-stretch, stiffer fabrics.

Sewfree Tape is lighter, sleeker, more durable and a whole lot more attractive. It’s the natural next step in the evolution of apparel, soft goods, and automotive designs.

Sewfree tapes are designed to enhance the look and feel of performancewear, outerwear and lifestyle apparel. This High Recovery Tape replaces elastics and bulky sewn seams in performancewear and intimate wear. It allows for optimum stretch and recovery while maintaining a sleek, smooth seam and/or hem. These films allow designers to create durable, high-quality reflective design elements without sewing. Because it’s bonded there are no stitch holes for water to seep into – improving water resistance. It keeps your customers drier and happier.
