  • clear application tape. what are your views?

    Hi board
    I was wondering has anyone used clear application tape.
    I bought some in and used it today. Im not sure if I liked it. It’s very hard to tear
    And doesn’t feel good when applying.
    Am I being silly or has anyone else had the same views on the stuff.

    Sally! – it’s the best thing invented since ‘welding’ in software packages…

    don’t knock it – it is aweful stuff to tear/handle as it expands in the heat and crinkles in the cold but once you start using it to align multi-colour work you’ll never go back…

    that and silicone impregnated squeegee covers – luv ’em…

    Hi Sally
    I have to agree with Mike, we would be lost without it. It did take me a while to get use to it but wouldnt be without it now.
    Some brands seem to be easier than others, so you might need to shop about abit.

    thanks guys i thought it was probably somthing i would have to get used to.
    it is much better to lay up like you said. its really just the tearing bit that bugs me the most.
