Image1Impact Introduces a New Tape Applicator

 

Wrinkles and bubbles caused when transferring application tape to vinyl graphics usually result in wrinkles and bubbles in applied graphics.  The new ProRoll Application Tape Roller from Image One Impact allows you to easily apply application tape without problems. Transferred tape is applied evenly and smoothly.

 

Once the applicator is loaded with tape, you’re good to go. Even the most inexperienced employee can now apply application tape by himself with minimal instruction or supervision.

 

 

 

 

What makes this applicator different than other tape applicators is a heavy-duty stable design, giving you more control. With one hand just push the applicator forward.  The new design prevents the applicator from skewing as you apply the application tape.   Applied tape is accurately aligned.

 

 

Because the ProRoll Application Tape Roller is lightweight and portable, you can easily move it from one work table to another. At this time, the new applicator is available to hold rolls of application tape up to 12” wide. The company has plans to introduce larger application tape rollers.

Many shops, which have printed wall murals in which the ink bleeds to the edge of the panel, have experienced edge curl issues with a variety of vinyl films. For permanent wall graphics applications, I would consider using Arlon’s DPF 8000 film. DPF 8000 is a 3.5 mil (90 micron) satin white calendered vinyl, designed for long term indoor and outdoor applications. It features an aggressive, permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive that sticks to those “hard-to-stick-to” surfaces.
