    Greetings! Has anyone any knowledge of using some kind of powder between decals to enable temporary decals to be stuck over existing decals, and then cleanly removed afterwards? French chalk? Sounds a bit risky if the temporary decals release during a game?

    have you tried a removable vinyl? Oracal 3621 w/ 210 lam or even a 3m180 w/ 8520 would remove cleanly when applied to other vinyl.

    If I’m understanding you correctly, you are putting a graphic over an existing graphic and then removing soon after.

    Look into the EZ Dot vinyl or the micro-suction type vinyls out there.

    Easy to install and then remove

    Depends on how the dasher was originally manufactured. We produce ours with a thicker scratch resistant type lam to make them last longer. If you have that then you could just apply over the top of that and remove after no problem. I would stay clear of the EZ Dot micro suction type materials as I don't think that would hold up with the abuse a hockey dasher takes. I would also not use any kind of powder between the two as that would reduce the adhesion as well.

    Thanks for responses. The powder thing is something we've seen used, but not used ourselves - and was curious if anyone else had info about it. As I said, concerned that they would release prematurely. Unfortunately, our rink doesn't change the decals too often, so they get beat up pretty bad and I fear any decal stuck over the top will just pull the underlying ones off.

    EZ Dot works fine in that situation. We have used the product for overlays on dashers for indoor soccer, as short-term counter overlays, and also overlays for wraps for parades and etc. Never damages the lower product and is tough and durable depending on the lam used.

    This material called XBase is made just for that purpose, nothing will ever permanently bond to your graphic or anything that has XBase on top of it.
