How To Use Application Tape Step-by-Step Guide:
- Prepare the Surface: Ensure that the surface you’re applying the graphic to is clean, dry, and free from dust, dirt, or any contaminants. Wipe it down with a clean lint-free cloth or paper towels to ensure a smooth and debris-free surface.
- Cut the Graphic: If your graphic is part of a larger vinyl sheet, cut it out using scissors or a cutting tool. Leave a small border around the graphic for easier handling.
- Prepare the Application Tape: Roll out a section of the application tape, slightly longer than your graphic. Cut the application tape using scissors.
- Peel Backing from Application Tape: Gently peel off the backing of the application tape, exposing the adhesive side. Be careful not to touch the adhesive with your fingers, as this might reduce its effectiveness.
- Place Application Tape on Graphic: Align the application tape over the graphic, ensuring that it covers the entire design. The grid pattern on the application tape, such as the one on ABI 1310 Grid, can help you align and position the graphic accurately.
- Press Down Securely: Once aligned, press down on the application tape and graphic using your hands to ensure good adhesion between the application tape and the vinyl graphic.
- Squeegee Application: Use a squeegee or application tool to firmly press and smooth the application tape onto the graphic. Start from the center and move outward, making sure there are no bubbles or creases.
- Peel Off Vinyl Backing: Slowly peel the backing off the sign vinyl, starting at one corner. The vinyl graphic should stick to the application tape as you peel.
- Position the Graphic: Position the graphic with the application tape over the clean, prepared surface. Take your time to align it exactly where you want it to be.
- Press and Smooth: Gently press down on the application tape and graphic using your hands, then use the squeegee to smooth out the graphic from the center outward. This step ensures proper adhesion to the surface.
- Peel off Application Tape: Slowly and carefully peel off the application tape at a sharp angle, pulling it back over itself. Make sure the vinyl graphic adheres to the surface as you peel.
- Inspect and Finish: Carefully inspect the applied graphic for any bubbles or imperfections. If you notice any, use the squeegee to smooth them out. Once you’re satisfied, allow the graphic to set for a few hours before exposing it to any potential stress or environmental conditions.
By following these steps and taking your time, you can achieve a clean and professional-looking application of your sign vinyl graphic onto a smooth surface using application tape. Remember that practice makes perfect, so don’t be discouraged if it takes a few tries to get the hang of it.
