FR Hook & Loop Fasteners, Tack-downSKU# FRTBH-100
These hook and loop fasteners have a narrow strip of PSA backing (Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive) to assist with sewing. They are ideal for applications such as upholstery closeouts or holding down seat cushions in automobiles, boats, trains, and airplanes. The adhesive performs well in direct sunlight and high temperatures on a wide variety of surfaces, such as glass, metal, painted metal, and rigid plastics. Avoid with plywood, EVA, and PVC. The thin strip allows for sewing on either side without griming the sewing machine.
