Double Side Carpet TapeDid you know that our double-sided carpet tape is used by the largest exhibition and trade show companies in the world? Clearly, we are serious about carpet tape.  And while there are a lot of available alternatives, there’s good reason why ours is favored by so many professionals — it’s reliable, easy to use and always gets the job done. In fact, professional contractors consider our double-sided carpet tape the industry standard so here’s what you need to know:

What is Double Sided Carpet Tape?

Coated with adhesive on both sides, carpet tape is specifically designed to stick really well to two surfaces creating a strong bond.  Indeed, its first-rate performance can be attributed to three keys factors.

• Extreme stickiness: Our specially formulated adhesive gives our tape an aggressive hold that means your rug or flooring product won’t slip, bunch, or come undone.

• Removability: Unlike other carpet tapes on the market, ours is designed to be removable. But in order for this feature to be an advantage we needed to formulate an adhesive that would not damage the surface beneath it, nor leave any residue behind. These qualities are critical when adhering rugs or other flooring products for temporary events like trade shows, boardroom meetings, and grand openings or to surfaces like laminate flooring that cannot be easily repaired.

• Versatility. Most tapes on the market are only meant to secure carpeting to hard surfaces. Our specifically formulated double-coated tape will work on textile surfaces including existing carpeting or textured surfaces like concrete. It can also be applied in cool temperatures (perfect for chilly basements, warehouses, or outdoor use) and is moisture and heat resistant.

10 Surfaces That Are Compatible with Carpet Tape

Our double-sided carpet tape is specially formulated to have an aggressive hold and the ability to remove cleanly without leaving residue or damaging the surface beneath it. But these two features don’t mean as much unless the tape works with the surfaces you’re using.
