PL JOINT TAPE
Permalawn Joining Tape
PermaLawn seaming tape is a specially constructed tape for use with the recommended PermaLawn adhesive in forming strong bonds when seam joining artificial grass lawns. Regularly used in the landscaping of busy leisure areas.
The tape consists of a strong geo textile white fabric on one side and this is laminated to a polyolefinic film to prevent the penetration of adhesive through to the under surface. Our 200mm joining tape is impervious to moisture ingress from the base which provides our products with a huge life span. Added to this the geo-textile construction offers increased resistance to rot.
Our 200mm joining tape is supplied in a rolled form. This not only allows us to provide a more compact product that is easier to transport and store but to use and cut you just simply unroll the tape and cut your desired length, easy! When cutting your joining tape we recommend using either a pair of high quality scissors or a shape blade Stanley knife to ensure an accurate and smooth cut.
PermaLawn 200mm x 100m joining tape application
PermaLawn's 200mm x 100m joining tape is a seaming tape constructed for use in conjunction with polyurethane based adhesives. The makeup of the tape allows it to form strong bonds to the back of artificial grass solutions when used in combination with our adhesives.
When using the tape-adhesive combination be sure to apply the correct amount of adhesive to the white fabric side of the tape. During the application process take care to make sure that the edges of the artificial grass are firmly pressed into the wet adhesive to ensure maximum attraction.
PermaLawn's 200mm joining tape has a tensile strength of 400 N/5 cm. Tensile strength (often shortened from Ultimate Tensile Strength) is an objects ability to resist loads which apply an elongating force (stretching). This differs to other forms of strength such as compressive which is an objects ability to resist being crushed by an inwards force.
Using this standard our 200mm joining tapes tensile strength of 400 N/5cm simply means that for every 5cm length of the tape is can withstand 400 Newton's, which is the equivalent to just over 40kg.
