3M Finish Line Knifeless Tape - Cuts Like A Knife Only Better!

3M Finish Line Knifeless Tape - Cuts Like A Knife Only Better!

Precisely And Efficiently Cut Through Graphic Film Without A Knife And Without Surface Damage To Create A Clean Line

No Blade. No Damage. No Worry.

This unique product is a high strength metal filament wire that is embedded in a thin low tack self-adhesive. Knifeless tape is designed as an alternative to trimming vinyl wraps directly on vehicles with a blade. You can cut graphic/vehicle wrap without the need for using a knife, eliminating the risk of nicks or cuts from a blade on the vehicle or substrate.

Finish Line Knifeless Tapes were inspired by the idea of never having to worry about surface damage when cutting any graphic film. This means that there’s no damage for you or your customers to worry about.

Designed by graphics installers, Finish Line Knifeless Tape gives new installers the opportunity to start trimming sooner, gaining confidence, and it takes experienced installers to the next level — increasing their speed and unleashing their creativity.

How To Use 3M Finish Line Knifeless Tape?

Finish Line Knifeless tape is often used for striping and creating large shapes and curves with coloured vinyls.

This tape turns easily in any direction to follow contours, curves and edges on vehicles.

It can also be used around vehicle emblems, tail lights, door handles and other hardware on the body panels of a vehicle.

  1. Begin with 6 inches (15 cm) of tape (before and after) where the graphic will be cut and lay down 3M™ Knifeless™ Tape. Apply the film with pressure over the 3M™ Knifeless™ Tape, leaving the lead and tail tape visible.
  2. To remove air bubbles, press the film onto the 3M™ Knifeless™ Tape again with your finger.
  3. Fold the start of the tape back over itself approximately 3 inches (8 cm).
  4. Press thumb firmly on folded edge, covering at least 0.4 inches (1 cm) tape. Firmly grasp the end of the tape with your thumb and index finger. Start with your two thumbs 0.4 inches (1 cm) apart. Bring thumbs together and give the tape a quick snap, breaking the carrier tape and exposing the filament (line).
  5. Pull the line back and not upward, stopping before the edge of the graphic.
  6. Press your thumb over both the filament and the graphic edge. Gently tug the filament to start cutting into the graphic, continuing to pull the line back and not upward. Ensure to pull the line in direction of the cut line. Note: Tension applied during the application and cutting process should remove any slight distortions in the filament.
  7. After cutting is finished, remove the excess film and the carrier tape from under the film. Please note that after cutting the carrier tape has split in two tapes. Both tapes need to be removed completely without residuals.
  8. Heat the edges of the film and reapply the film edges with firm pressure.
