Capitol® Carpet Seam Tapes

Premium low-melt seam tape formulations

Product Description

Capitol® carpet seam tapes have been designed with lower melt temperature adhesive, allowing the same ease of installation as other tapes, but at a lower iron setting. The lower heat means that there is minimal damage to the carpet pad, carpet backing, and face pile, and reduced smoke and odor during installation.

Capitol® carpet seam tapes come in a wide variety of widths and with different strengths of adhesive, ensuring that there is a Capitol® seam tape with the right performance and at the right price for any carpeting installation.
