What Are Sealed Seams

Tents are made in that obviously need to be tailored according to your project. The sobreteto and other parts that are exposed to rain are usually made in fabrics that already have a certain degree of water resistance, which is often defined by the Column of water . But, to be stitched, the tissues suffer “microfuros” through which the line, and these holes, however small they may be, are places where the water will penetrate, wetting the inside of the tent. So, in addition to having waterproof fabrics, also need tents come with sealed seams, that is, with the holes covered. The vast majority of the tents already comes with a species of silicone transparent tape that makes the selection of sewing, preventing the water feed through holes. But that’s not a rule!This information is always check the technical data of the equipment.
________________________________________
Fragility of selection
As commented, the vast majority of the tents come with sealed seams, but after enough use, the selection will handicapping and the sealing tape begins to take off. This happens due to excessive sun, variations in temperature, or simply because the tent is very used. Even taking care of tent, often there is no way to prevent this to happen at some point.
“The selection has taken off! And now, the tent must be destroyed? ”
Seal Seams (liquid)
Not necessarily! There is a product, which is the Seal of Seams, which is a kind of liquid silicone that can be applied in the tent where the selection took off. However, this product may not have the same effectiveness as the original selection. The seal of seams can be used also when not hut comes originally with sealed seams. This product can be found in stores that sell camping articles.
When the selection start taking off, think of it as a sign that your tent is reaching the limit of useful life and that soon, you will need to buy a new tent to be partner of your adventures.
How to make the selection
It’s kind of annoying to make application of the sealer and, if not done properly, can leak – so do with great care. Most come with a pincelzinho to make the application, but he is not very efficient.If you don’t mind, apply with the same finger, you’ll feel more security on the application. After passing the product, leave the tent dry, without bending, by at least 12:00 am.

Note: Unfortunately we had a problem in sound quality due to excessive wind. But when possible we will provide a new video.
Seam sealer tape (Waterproof Tape)
Another possibility is to seal the seams that didn’t come sealed (or that are losing their combo) with a Sealing Tape similar to the originals. Although this material not be sold regularly in Brazil, it is possible to buy import this product or buy directly with us, depending on how many meters you need.
The Sealing Tape that we buy has 2 cm thick. Is a Silicon tapefuse that you apply on the fabric and passes with iron to activate the adhesive part that she has on one of the faces. See the video more details about the product and how to make the application.
Video of the application:
Finally, it is worth commenting that a tent had sealed seams is just as important as she has a minimum of waterproofing in the fabric. After all, at the time of rain, everything you don’t want to have to face a leak in the middle of the tent and watch your belongings get soaked!
