How Do I Prepare A Surface For SJ3560?

Just like any good reliable self-adhesive it’s crucial to take the steps to make sure your surface is clean for the best adhesion result.

Adhesive backed dual lock reclosable fasteners should be applied to surfaces that are clean, dry and free of moisture, oil, rust grease, dust, mould release agents and/or other containments that could reduce the adhesion. Highly textured surfaces may reduce the ultimate adhesion levels.

To prepare a surface for adhesive backed dual lock it is best to use a cleaning cloth or tissue.
The cleaning cloth or tissue must be changed frequently based on the number of contaminants removed from the surface. If not changed frequently this will only smear surface contaminants, or contaminate an already clean surface.
Additionally, if a liquid cleaning solution is used, it is essential that the cleaners do not contain surfactants, fragrances or other additives which may not fully evaporate leaving an undesirable film on the material which will reduce the adhesive bond strength.
