KOOLGLIDE Utility Tape for Use with
the KOOLGLIDE Carpet Seaming System

The KOOLGLIDE Utility tape is unique fastener for wood, ceramic, plastic, and other non-metallic products to wood, concrete, and masonry. It is used with the KOOLGLIDE Model PRO carpet seaming and PRO-W flooring tool. The tape is made of a layer of sticky adhesive on one side that provides permanent bonding, and a hot melt adhesive on the other. To apply the tape, peal back the release paper and attach the sticky, pressure sensitive side of the tape to one of the items to be bonded. Align both items and use the KOOLGLIDE tool on L, M, or H setting to activate the hot melt adhesive and complete the bonding process. The item can be removed at any time by re-activating the tool and melting the hot melt adhesive beneath it.

Specifications

Surface preparation

Make sure the items to be bonded are dry and free from dirt, dust, any old adhesive, wax, silicone, grease or other materials that would prevent proper bonding.

ApplicationS

This tape may be used for several applications. The following are the most common:

Wood Floors – Using the Utility tape, wood flooring can be adhered to any wood or concrete sub floor. The Utility tape is placed under the wood plank and the tool is placed on top of the plank centered over the tape. Set the tool to ‘M’ or ‘H’ and place directly on the item centered over the tape. Do not have any exposed tape - it may cause damage to the tool if it is activated over the exposed tape. Use the KOOLGLIDE tool as you would over carpet - the tool activates and melts the adhesive as it travels down the length of the plank one tool length at a time. The hot melt adhesive bond can be re-melted by placing the tool over the tape and re-activating the tool.

Base Molding – Using the Utility tape, carpet base molding can be strongly adhered to any surface. Use the KOOLGLIDE tool as you would on wood floors - the tool activates and melts the adhesive as it travels down the length of the material.

Ceramic Tile On Walls – Using the Utility tape, ceramic wall tiles above counters can be easily installed. The Utility tape is placed under the ceramic tiles and the tool is placed over the tiles – the tile area must be equal to or greater than the base of the tool (>8”). Use the KOOLGLIDE tool as you would on base molding - the tool activates and melts the adhesive as it travels down the length of the tiles.
