EFFETTO MARIPOSA CAROGNA - DOUBLE SIDED TUBULAR GLUING TAPE
Carogna double sided adhesive tape is a fast, clean and safe way to glue tubulars, matching the best mastics in terms of gluing performance and heat-resistance.
Carogna is designed and has been tested to perform flawlessly on any rim material (aluminum, carbon), with any tubular (seamless, handmade, vulcanized sew-ups; with flat of raised-center-seam base tape), on and off-road. Adhesion is very strong and uniform across the whole circumference of the rim for all tubulars and it is also uniform across the tubular base tape. One short-coming of other gluing techniques is the limited adhesion at the edges of the base tape, or in the center, depending on the shape of the tubular and of the rim. Carogna solves this problem with specific adhesive properties on rim and tubular side.
Carogna tape has two application-specific type of glues:
Semi-structural but removable on the rim-side: adhesion is guaranteed by industrial-grade acrylic glue. When removing the tubular (breaking its bond with the rim), the acrylic glue will stay on Carogna tape, not on the rim. Acrylic glue has a reliable adhesion on both aluminum and carbon.
Permanent on the tubular side: 1 mm-thick layer of high-viscosity, permanent glue (originally issued for underwater applications) will plastically deform and adapt to the tubular base tape shape when the tubular is inflated, ensuring an optimal contact surface for gluing. This glue adheres well to any kind of base tape material (nylon, cotton, poly-cotton) or external finishing (raw, brushed, or coated by neoprene).
