Instabind™ Cotton Binding Style
Instabind™ cotton binding style mimics standard cotton binding. Available in 30 stock colors from our sisal color swatch card, it’s more durable than standard carpet binding and helps reinforce the carpet backing along the cut edges. Best of all the only tools needed to apply are a hot glue gun and carpet scissors. 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). We recommend that you use latex-based hot melt glue sticks for a long-lasting strong hold. The diameter of this style of Instabind is approximately 3/8″ thick.
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.
