Discover Which Tape is Perfect for Your Hair System!

Posted by Superhairpieces on Nov 06, 2020

At Superhairpieces, we don’t believe one size fits all. In fact, we honestly believe that everyone is built in a very unique way so our products have to reflect on this as well. Everything down to the supplies; tailors to at least one individual. Especially with our tape adhesive. We have a wide range from daily tapes, to permanent bonding, tapes made specifically for poly or lace materials, and pretty much everything in between.

But, we know that is definitely a lot to digest so we broke it down for you in this blog.

Here you will find all our tapes from daily to monthly, hold times and which type of material they stick on to the best!

Weekly

German Brown Tape by Walker
This is the most commonly used tape in the industry. Generally used with a hard bond adhesive for permanent attachments. German Brown Tape is applied directly to the hair system and attaches more firmly to the hard bond adhesive than other types of tape. Generally when a hard bond adhesive fails, it is due to the tape it is attached to. With German Brown, you don’t have to worry about the hard bond disconnecting from the tape. Professional use only Can only be used on poly material. Lace with poly, full poly, and/or poly perimeters. Non-medical, non-hypoallergenic but skin safe.

Super Tape
SUPERTAPE is virtually odorless and optically clear. This tape is very sticky but will quickly adhere to any base type. It also stretches with any skin movement naturally and completely without binding or bunching. Medical, hypoallergenic & skin safe

Hold: Maximum wear (4-5 weeks). When applying SUPERTAPE to lace, keep in mind the following: the bonding surface should be clean of debris, oil, water, and any surface treatment, i.e. conditioner or emollient. Apply SUPERTAPE once, lifting and reapplying can weaken the bond and shorten hold times. Press firmly into place and do not “test” the bond. Complete cure time should be no more than 10 minutes under normal conditions. Heat will weaken the bonding strength of SUPERTAPE over time; therefore, avoid exposing SUPERTAPE to direct heat.
