Instabind™ regular style carpet binding mimics standard or traditional binding but without showing any stitching. Available in 22 stock colors, it’s more durable than traditional carpet binding and actually helps reinforce the carpet backing along the cut edges. Best of all the only tools needed to apply are carpet scissors and a hot glue gun. We recommend that you use latex-based hot melt glue sticks for a long-lasting strong hold. You can purchase Instabind in standard 54 or 216 ft rolls (priced by the roll) or custom size lengths with a $.40 per foot up-charge (priced by the foot). Please note the diameter is estimated to be 9/32″ wide.
Note: Rule of thumb for synthetic vs. natural fiber: if it’s a cotton or wool rug/carpet, use natural fiber binding or serging, i.e. cotton, if it’s a synthetic rug/carpet then synthetic binding or serging is appropriate (although cotton is still a higher quality look!).
Please note that ALL custom cut PER FOOT orders are NON-RETURNABLE.
