Cleaning up messy spray adhesive from your pallets is time both time consuming and costly. It’s also unnecessary. By pre-covering your pallets with RTape 4350 Pallet Protek™ and spraying the paper tape instead of the pallet, press clean-up is simply a matter of removing and discarding the tape. The whole process is faster and easier if you follow the instructions below.

  1. Cut a sheet of pallet protection tape large enough to cover the pallet as shown in photo #1. Using a squeegee, apply the tape to the platen of the screen print press. To save time, many printers will use the roll of pallet protection tape to burnish the sheet to the platen, rolling it over the surface.

  1. One way to save time and increase shop productivity is to apply several layers of the RTape Pallet Protek™ 4350 tape to a pallet. When you need a clean sheet of pallet protection tape, just pull off the top layer. Before applying the additional layers of tape, mark the base layer with a large “X” as shown in the photo below. This will alert you that you need to reapply additional layers.
