When planning a remodel, using the right materials (including tapes) is key. From carpet installation and floor refinishing to painting and baseboard mounting, you’ll need a variety of tapes to get the job done! 

Let's dive into a few specific applications to understand which tapes are suitable for which tasks.

Carpet: BT-48896 Scrim-Bond® is a double-sided adhesive for pre-nailing placement. It has proven successful in laminating and bonding in the flooring industry, with an adhesive strong enough to prevent the carpet from moving or slipping, ensuring safety and consistency in carpet placement. 

Floor Refinishing: In epoxy and polyaspartic applications, Clean Green® is the best choice. This tape is not only solvent and chemical-resistant, but it's also hand-tearable, conformable, and provides clean removal for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Painting: For professional painting results, our Application Specialists recommend Killer Bee®! It protects surfaces and helps achieve razor sharp paint lines. Killer Bee® is also hand-tearable, conformable, and leaves no residue, ensuring clean and sharp results.

Baseboards: For permanently installing baseboards, Scrim-Bond® reinforced scrim tape can help provide additional support. 

By carefully considering the application and incorporating the right tapes into your remodel, you can achieve professional and long-lasting results. The right tapes not only provide practical solutions but also contribute to the overall longevity of your newly remodeled space.
