Application Instructions and Tips:
Polyurethane elastic tapes must be stretched to their limit 3 times
before sewing. This relaxes the elastic's memory and will
provide the best performance and fit in your finished garment.

solid rubber and PU tapes can create perforation lines, use zig-zag
- 6mil (0.15mm) is the minimum thickness
for diaper/nappy and swimsuit uses..
