Double sided tape - 6 mm x 100 metre roll. Double sided self adhesive tape for sail seams and luff tapes. Per 100 metre/roll.

Principally used for attaching the luff tape to headsails. Use also for seams of sails for small yachts less than 1 metre long and narrow seams for sails that will be used in light airs.

Follow the steps shown in the thumbnail views to add this tape to the luff of a sail to make a small pocket for a forestay or jackline/jaskstay.

1   Please the sail on a firm flat surface. Use tape to stretch the luff slightly and kepe the sail in place.  2   Add 6 mm wide double sided tape along the edge, ref TS-06.  3   Peel off the protective backing.   4   Place the luff tape, ref TP-01, TP-20 or TP-40, along the luff taking care to align the edge with the edge of the doublesided tape.   5   Turn the sail over and tape the sail down to the surface.   6   Add 6 mm wide double sided tape along the edge. Do not peel off the backing paper.   7   Fold over the luff tape making sure you align the edges and make a firm crease along the fold.   8   Peel off the backing paper.  9   Lightly fold over the luff tape. If there is misalignment you will be able to lift it off the double sided tape if it has not been pressed down hard. When you are satisfied with the fold rub down hard along the tape.
