  • Cycle Frame Protection Instructions And Tips.

    Bike frame protection fitting instructions.

    * Always fit the stickers in a closed space (garage) or kitchen if allowed.
    * Avoid any draughts or wind from open doors/windows this can cause debits on the adhesive.
    * Avoid touching the stickers on the back with your fingers, always hold them by the sides. Slightly bend the whole sheet until the sticker that you require pops out.
    * Ideal tape application temperature range is 21ºC - 35ºC
    * Application temperatures below 10ºC is not recommended because the adhesive becomes firm.
    * Cut the tape to the size required if you have ordered a plain sheet.
    * Clean the surface and remove all wax - polish - oils - dirt etc.
    * Make sure all debits - dust - hairs - bits - fluff etc are removed just before fitting the stickers.
    * Start with small pieces first to get the hang of fitting the stickers.
    * The tape can be easily formed / stretched around tight curves using a heat gun or decent hair dryer.
    * The adhesive is heat and pressure sensitive so the more you heat and press down on the sticker the better it will stick.
    * The sticker (or sheet) is easily applied either dry for small pieces or with a mix of water & 5% fairy liquid for very large pieces.
    * For small pieces 'roll' the sticker down into position, making sure you avoid trapping air bubbles under the tape.
    * For much larger pieces spray the item you are taping with water and soap, remove the sticker and apply.
    * You can slide the sticker around as long as you have sprayed enough liquid on the adhesive side of the tape.
    * When the sticker is in the correct position you can squeegee the liquid from under it removing all the air bubbles.
    * The sticker will now be stuck into position.
    * Check YouTube for extra tips - type 'applying bike frame protection' into the search bar.

    * Don't apply in cold conditions, let the tape & item warm up before fitting and remove any condensation.
    * Don't try to fit large pieces until you get the hang of applying smaller pieces first.
    * Don't try to fit complex curves and shapes until you can apply easier pieces first.
    * Don't expect too much from one piece - Use multiple smaller pieces rarer than one big piece.
    * Using a heat gun or hot hair dryer will enable the sticker or sheet to be stretched round complex curves.
    * Apply a larger sticker or sheet bit by bit - heating & laying the sticker down as you go.
    * If you do the above it will stay stuck for years without issues.

    If you fail to prepare and rush in, it will not work as well and look like a bodge job. This is not the fault of the sticker.
