WrapCut® Application Process
How to cut vinyl with WrapCut edge cutting tape.
Apply WrapCut to the surface with the filament (tape edge) positioned on the desired trim line. Leave about 4 inches of tape exposed beyond the edge of the film so that the cutting filament can be located. Press both the film and tape down firmly to the surface.
To create a pull tab, use a cutting tool to make a cut or incision in the tape approximately 1 to 2 inches from the end of the tape. Do not cut through the filament.
Placing a finger on the tape where the cut was made, tug the end piece of tape, freeing the end piece of the tape to create a pull tab.
Using the pull tab, pull the bare filament free from the tape and then in the direction of the vinyl right up to the edge where the cutting will begin.
While pressing the film down at the edge where the filament enters, give the filament a quick tug to begin cutting through the vinyl.
Continue pulling the filament with a steady motion along the edge of the tape and at a 45 degree angle towards the direction of the trim line.
This picture shows the tape being removed simultaneously with the film. The film can also be removed first, leaving the tape in place for removal afterwards.
This picture shows an alternative method whereby the film was removed from above the trim line, leaving the tape hidden below the remaining film. WrapCut tape is very strong allowing for easy removal from beneath the film without damaging the film edge.
