Mats with Self-Adhesive
Please read through instructions before starting.
1.Prior to removing the paper backing, position all mat pieces. This will help insure proper location and fit. Tracing along the outside edge in pencil will help give you a guide to make sure you are installing the mat kit in the proper position.
2.Remove the old mats (if applicable) and clean the area where the new mats will go. Make sure the surface is free of dirt and oil. A solvent such as acetone or alcohol works well. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area.
3.If your mat has a die cut logo in it, the logo should be left in the mat to ensure proper fit. Taping the top side of the logo will help hold it in place during installation.
4.You are now ready to glue down your new Hydro-Turf mats. Double check to make sure area is dry and free of dirt, oil or old glue. Work with one piece at a time. Using two people for the larger pieces will make installation easier. Peel off paper backing and gently position mat in place, do not apply pressure yet so the mat can be repositioned if necessary.
5.Once the mat is correctly positioned, apply firm pressure. Work from the center to the outer edges. This is a pressure sensitive adhesive, so put as much weight into as you can. Use a small rolling pin or similar round object to go over the surface of the mat paying attention to the edges of the kit to ensure a good bond.
6.After 24 hour the mat kit is 85% cure and can be used. Self Adhesive cures 100% after 48 hrs..
1.Do not place your mats in the sun prior to installation, they will shrink and will become unusable.
2.Always store your craft in a shaded area or use a PWC cover when not in use
3.Should your Hydro-Turf get dirty it can be cleaned using any soap or cleanser and a brush. Be sure to rinse thoroughly, as any leftover residue can make a slippery surface.
