Failure To Follow These Instructions May Result In Adhesion Failure.
This step allows you to apply half of the vinyl transfer at a time.
Be careful not to touch the adhesive side of the vinyl transfer. Use scissors to cut away the excess release liner and discard.
Beginning at the center hinge, make easy overlapping, pushing strokes with your squeegee. Remove the center hinge tape and slowly peel the remaining release liner away.
Squeegee the other half of the vinyl transfer, working from the center to the edges.
you were pulling and re-squeegee that area. If after removing the application tape, air bubbles are apparent, puncture the vinyl with a pin or sharp #11 x-acto blade
squeegee out the air towards the puncture.
between the bonding surface and vinyl transfer, resulting in a bubble-free, wrinkle-free application.
CAUTION: Wet application may delay the immediate removal of the application tape. A waiting period of up to 30 minutes may be necessary.
Additional Precautions and Procedures:
Do not excessively stretch graphic during application. This will cause of ends lift. Pull the stripe only as taut as necessary to keep a straight line.
Because vinyl is a pressure-sensitive product, a squeegee must be used for all installations.
Apply graphics using a squeegee. After the application tape/premask is removed, squeegee a second time, focusing mainly on the edges and tips.
Pin stripe can be laid down initially using your thumb. However, after the application tape is removed, a squeegee must be used on all cut ends
including door breaks as well as the ends of the stripe.
When removing the application tape/premask, always pull it slowly, back onto itself, at a 180-degree angle.
Bubbles should be punctured using a sharp air release tool a x-acto knife is recommended . Do not slit the vinyl to release the air. If the vinyl is slit it will spread or gap.
The cutting or trimming of any stripe or graphic should be done using an x-acto knife using very little pressure. Any openings, such as doors,
should be trimmed back away from edges at least 1/8 of an inch. Do not wrap the vinyl around door edges this will promote lifting of the graphics in the future.
Storage precautions should be taken when hood, roof or deck graphics are installed.
Protection of graphics from prolonged direct sunlight will insure an extended life. We always recommend hiring a professional for installation.
