    Hello all,

    Looking for recommendations for Manufacturer/Product of a roll adhesive product that can be applied to back side of .020 styrene to make a poor man's temporary "decal" for multi location gym company. They don't want to use self-adhesive vinyl due to simple fact they can't rely on managers putting them up correctly/straight/without bubbles, etc. and don't want to pay to have someone who knows what they are doing to install them.

    Have been using RemoTac and MultiTac from Drytac, but wanted to know if someone has other recommendations.
    Doing it this way gives them a nice stiffer product that can be contour cut, if needed, and you don't need to be a rocket surgeon to put it on wall.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    What kinda walls ?? Gyms usually have painted block walls, but not all of them. That might come into play.

    Varies from location to location from painted concrete block to sealed smooth concrete to dry wall. Have been using MultiTac mounting adhesive from DryTac, but just wanted to see what else is out there other than mounting adhesives.

    I'm using GF Concept 107 mounting film. Haven't had any issues with it.

    I've used velcro dots for similar projects, 99% idiot-proof for install and you'd be surprised how well it holds up in non-kid environments.

    We used to use GBC DuraMount for stuff like this, VHB is easier and sticks better to odd surfaces.

    3m 467MP, but it's not temporary... Are all of these temp films?

    Being in the Exhibit field, just about everything we apply is “temporary” so Hook & Loop is the way to go.

    You could always have them just mount XBase onto their walls, then you can assure them that installing vinyl prints will be a breeze.
