Binding Tape

About This Item

First choice for binding work! High-tack adhesive and stiffer backing make this the strongest paper tape we've found for securing bindings while the glue dries.

3/4" x 60-yard (19mm x 55-meter) roll.

Not recommended for use on vintage or delicate finishes.

Our binding tape has a strong adhesive—good for applying pressure, but be cautious about using tape on soft top woods like spruce. With soft woods, first stick our binding tape to a cotton t-shirt to give it less tack before applying it. This will help reduce the possibility of any damage when you go to remove it.

Once the glue is dry, remove any tape slowly and gently—pulling at an angle and lightly rubbing it with your index finger. Warming the tape will also help it lift away easily without pulling out wood fibers.

For more information, see our How to Install Bindings article.

Yeah, you could try different tapes like me and finally realize that this tape is slightly cheaper than other specialty tapes, and works better. I researched this to find out that this is actually Butcher's tape or something almost exactly like it, but it costs more elsewhere and doesn't' come this narrow, which works PERFECTLY for holding down bindings. And I use a lot of wood bindings, and don't always prebend them, this stuff holds, and its on my next order again...

This tape is great for all sorts of little jobs , from using tiny pieces to hold wiring in place until you fit cable clips to marking the bridge position on a tailpiece instrument while working on the saddle. A little heat and it peels away with no residue, great stuff.

Best option for the binding job

Fantastic solution to the binding quandary. This tape sticks without slippage and has the tension to hold wood bindings with confidence. Could be a little tougher on the corners, where it is liable to tear under high application pressure. But all told, this binding tape beats elastic bands and all measure of complicated clamping arrangements for obstructive binding materials.

WONDER TAPE!

This stuff is great! I use it for EVERYTHING!

It comes off clean and is great for EVERYTHING!

I use it to apply cloths or paper over the body and pickups when doing fretwok, holding pickups in cavitys when i'm turning the guitar over to work the electronics, masking the fret board. and you can write notes and stick it to a guitar. this stuff is AWESOME!

I have to echo what others have said - now that I have this tape I use it everywhere. Buy a roll and you'll wonder how you ever got by without it. One caution - it can damage already compromised finishes on vintage guitars.

Once you use it - you don't how you did without it. I find a dozen things a day to use it on.
