I used that stick on velcro before. I believe June has as well. Both of us had the same result. The Florida sun melted the glue and it ran all over the place. I quit using it and ordered sew on velcro which is what I use on solar screens.

I bought some two sided tape for a project I got in from Walmart. I believe it was made either by Scotch or 3M.

That stuff sticks................big time. I loved it but it is expensive to buy. It is also thicker then the seam tape. I used it on Tuffstuff fabric. When you put the tape down you better make sure you have it where you want it. :)

I use the standard seam tape on acrylics all the time. I typically will lay the work out, apply the seam tape and then I roll over the top of the seam with a small wallpaper roller I picked up at Lowes for $ 1.50. This helps alot but it wont hold it in place like the two sided tape I got at Wally's. That stuff is awesome.

In regards to the glue sticking to the needle I typically will spray the needle with silicone before doing each seam run. It doesn't completely stop the glue from sticking to the needle but helps a great deal from getting a big build up.

I went to walmart and could only find "Peel n Stick"

and it works great on sunbrella.  Only problem is it is 5/8" x 20'   wrong width and too short for commercial work

We are getting our double sided tape from our wall upholstery supply place called Wallmate
It comes in several widths, is not that heavy but has very good adhesion qualities.

Brankin:

I found that once you peel back one side and attache it to the fabric, you better make damn sure it is where you want it. I used it on Tuffstuff and OMG did that stuff stick. :)

I've truly used plenty of Super Seam Keep double sided tape in my sail restore business, but I've truly not observed anything that'll stick effectively to Sunbrella or Weathermax, so I am just hoping an individual has the answer.

I use super stick seam tape from Trivantage. But like the others posting here, it does not hold tight on Sunbrella, especially perpendicular to the weave. It''s pretty good, but it will unstick.
