Instructions

DON’T BE A NUMPTY

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS

 

 Well over 15,000 buyers have bought & applied the tape successfully

This clearly shows it is easy to do without problems & you can also do it

Failure will result in poor application

this is not the fault of the tape

 

See how easy it is - Watch YouTube

Try a small piece first to get the hang of it, and then move up in size

 

All tapes have an adhesive protective layer protecting the adhesive prior to application


 

1: Clean the surface well, ideally with degreaser
2: Measure the size of the area you want to protect
3: Cut the tape to the required size using sharp scissors or a craft knife
4: Peel back the backing from one end of the tape to expose the sticky side
5: Apply to the surface from one end peeling away the backing, smoothing from the centre towards the edges as you go

Using a heatgun to heat the tape will make it easier to apply especially to tight curves

The adhesive is temperature and pressure sensitive, so the hotter the better especially when it's cold

6: Don’t put too much on all in one go – you’ll get air bubbles & wrinkles



For large applications

You must use the ‘soapy water slide’ method, you can also use glass cleaner instead of water to float the tape

 

See YouTube for videos/tips on how to do this correctly

Type ‘applying protection tape’ into the search

ParagonTapes Tips:

DON’T be over ambitious

BE patient

DON’T Leave a small lip edge bent over a tight bend - It will lift under tension

DON’T expect miracles from the tape, you can only do so much with 1 piece

DON’T Try to cover vast complex shapes with 1 piece, use smaller pieces and butt them up

DON’T Apply the tape if the temperature is below 10deg C - the tape less flexible

It's all common sense stuff really
