tape is the clear elastic tape that made from TPU, which is
stink-proof, eco-friendly and recyclable. We have talked about mobilon tape uses several times. Besides sewing at shoulder part to keep the shape of T-shirt and using as mask ear loops, mobilon tape can also be used for designing drape of clothes.
being used for draped design, mobilon tape should be sewed by flexible
stitch. The stitch won’t make the thread cover the fabric or limit
fabric’s extension. This type of stitch is usually used on underwear
because it’s thin, simple and flexible. Through the stitch, clear
mobilon tape can stay close and flat on draped fabric.
keep the resilience and flexibility of the drape part, the mobilon tape
shouldn’t be too soft or narrow. Generally, the thinner and narrower,
the softer and stretcher the TPU tape is. So customers usually choose
mobilon tape in width of 5 mm to finish the draped design.
the raw material of TPU tape will also affect its resilience. For
example, B Series TPU tape (made from Taiwan raw material) has less
elasticity, D Series TPU tape (made from Germany raw material) has
medium elasticity, and S Series mobilon tape (made from Japan raw
material) has more elasticity. Therefore, customers choose D Series tape
for draped design at cuff and two seam parts of body. If the drape is
designed at neck part, more elasticity should be supported. So customers
choose S Series mobilon generally.
Mobilon tape has other usage that we haven’t recognize so far. We will talk more about it later.
