PMI Dual Tack Pallet Tape #380
« on: February 21, 2019, 01:02:03 PM »
Are you all using this? I saw this on a video recap of ISS Long Beach and ordered a sample.

We just ran 2000 impressions and though we had to wipe shirt fuzz, these stuck for the entire run, and then some.  I was pretty impressed.
This is not a sponsored post, I just had some real life experience with a new product that I love.

I have used it a few times.

Works great on regular 100% cotton garments.  Blended garments dont seem to stick well.
Been in the industry since 1996.  5+ years with QCM Inks.  Been a part of shops of all sizes and abilities both as a printer and as an Artist/separator.  I am now the Ink and Chemical Product Manager at Ryonet.

My Tubelite rep is bringing a sample of this stuff. Sounds promising. Glad to hear positive reviews about it so far.

looks interesting. got a sample coming.

I assume this isn't good for sweatshirts. Would be amazing if it was.

If someone made something like this for hoodies, oh man, would they make some money. I think I went through at least 70 bottles of web spray this winter so far...

I refuse to use web spray it cause to much of a mess and doesn’t work that great.

I use 3M super 77 for hoodies works pretty good. And I usually have to spray pallet every third rotation. I used about 2/3 of a can doing 250 champion eco crew necks. Granted, the print are was about 6x8.

Can costs $10 at Home Depot.

  I hope I didn't open a Pandora's spam box... Just since yesterday, I've gotten 3 e-mails from them.

Does it come out as a mist or web? I stopped using anything that mists years ago and won't go back. I've been using the web tack then going over it with a clean up card to sort of spread it out/reduce the amount in one area and it's been working pretty well. Keeps the fleece down and they aren't a nightmare to pull off the pallets anymore.

  this reminds me that years (many, many years) ago we would use 3M sandblast filler for adhesive.
I don't know how it is formulated now but it was and still is pretty cheap and it worked. Liquid carded on just like the water-based stuff now.

I've been looking to get this from Europe but no luck so far, can only find it from American suppliers. What a bummer. Oh well, it's still hoodie season so not too bothered but April is coming and need to try this out ASAP
