Blank Prep for Cork Tape

Rate this topic

More questions from a newbie redface.gif ...

 

What should I do to prep my blank before applying cork tape? Rough it up with some sand paper and clean with some denatured alcohol? Also, do I use any adhesive under the tape?

Gilbey, I'm no expert. But I have done this a couple of times.

No adhesive under the tape.

I scuff with a scotchbrite pad and clean with alcohol.

Apply tape nice and tight and even.

Roll taped area on a hard surface. Bench top and door jamb have served this purpose thus far. I'm thinking a small block of wood would work as well.

I've seen adhesive recommended, I'm hesitant to do that - what if the Cork tape needs to be repaired? How much of a b!tch will it be to remove with Contact Cemenet underneath it?

Yep , clean good with alchohol and apply tape directly. No glue. Plenty of stickem already on the cork tape. be sure to slightly stretch the cork tape (very slightly) so it stays tight. i alway lean toward too tight a seam between spirals. Better to have to push it down than to end up with spaces.
