Our partners at Banner Ups have discovered an easy way to finish textiles in silicone edge graphics (SEG) frames, with the new LexJet Adhesive Backed SEG Keder Tape. This aggressive peel-and-stick adhesive makes SEG frame finishing less complicated, with no sewing, heating or additional equipment required (and the staff to run it)!
The application of Keder Tape is quick: Just peel off the release liner to expose the adhesive; stick Keder Tape onto the fabric; tuck the taped fabric into the SEG frame, and press it into place for a taught, secure finish. We had great results using Keder Tape with EnduraFab Textiles as well as HP Light Fabric. This product has gone through extensive testing and demonstrated long-term durability needed for SEG frames.
Insider tip: Since the tape is repositionable before your firmly adhere it, place it lightly on the back of the graphic and align it to the frame. Reposition it if needed without damaging the graphic (another benefit of not sewing it). Once it’s positioned correctly, firmly press the adhesive onto the textile, and then place it into the frame.
