Rapid Tac Original Application Fluid

(Flesh Pink colour)

The quick and easy way to apply vinyl graphics wet.

Compared with soapy water, Rapid Tac can significantly improve the adhesive bond. Tests show an increase in adhesive values of 10%. This increase allows applications tapes to be removed very quickly, resulting in shorter field visits.

Rapid Tac speeds up application times, eliminates bubbling and wrinkling, helps application in cold and hot weather and makes the final result look consistently professional, especially on glass.

  • Stage One: Shake the bottle of Rapid Tac well and using strips of masking tape, position the graphic image.

  • Stage Two: Lift the image and use Rapid Tac sparingly to spray the substrate. Remove the liner from the film and place the self-adhesive image on the wet surface.

  • Stage Three: Finalise the position of the decal. Squeegee out the excess liquid, working from the centre outwards in all directions to enable the adhesive to start bonding. Wait 2 - 3 minutes.

  • Stage Four: Spray the Rapid Tac fluid directly onto the application tape, then remove the tape slowly, pulling diagonally. Wipe over the surface with a paper towel.
