In the world of high-performance clothing, particularly in tactical, outdoor, and motorcycle apparel, the integrity of a garment lies not just in the quality of the fabric but also in the strength and impermeability of its seams. This is where the process of seam sealing becomes pivotal. At Sky Swallow, a leader in producing top-tier tactical and outdoor clothing, we understand the critical role of seam sealing in ensuring the durability and weatherproofing of our products. This blog delves into the art and science of seam sealing and how Sky Swallow excels in this vital aspect of garment production.
What is Seam Sealing?
Seam sealing, also known as seam taping, is the process of applying a waterproof tape to the seams of a garment. This technique is essential for preventing water and moisture from penetrating through the needle holes left in the fabric after sewing.
Why is Seam Sealing Important?
Waterproofing: Seam sealing is crucial for making garments fully waterproof, especially in outdoor and tactical clothing where exposure to harsh weather conditions is common.
Durability: Sealed seams enhance the overall durability of the garment, protecting the stitches from wear and tear and potential damage.
