Tips for better Vinyl Removal While Weeding
The VR15 is a groundbreaking tool to greatly speed up the process of vinyl stripping. “An extra pair of hands”. Anything you normally weed by hand will be easier, quicker and more efficient with the VR15.
These are a few important factors that will effect how well your vinyl will strip.
The quality of the vinyl: when you consider the high cost of labour in vinyl stripping, it’s well worth the extra cost to purchase a high quality name brand vinyl. The age of the vinyl will become brittle. Also, always strip the vinyl soon after it is cut… in warm weather the adhesive may tend to rejoin.
Cutting blade condition is important, as is your plotter cutting pressure, the quality of the plotter, cutting software, speed of cut, and often overlooked, the condition of the plotters “cutting strip”. Let it be noted however, that whatever the above conditions, the VR15 will be a great improvement over stripping vinyl by hand.
The direction in which you begin can be a factor, as letters work best to strip from right to left, and numbers from left to right.
Small letters or images is best stripped by using a high quality cast (high performance) vinyl.
