Re: [BKARTS] Problem Solving with Gudy 870 & 831

Not TALAS, but...

Whether Gudy O or the 3M 568 equivalent, you really need to rub down hard... Depending on material and size I have found that applying the material (stacking if more than one) and putting in the press for a while makes this much easier. After that, peel and apply second materials, then put back in press.

Just applying with even light rubbing does not work (well).

Dear Aaron:
I'm not having luck with the Gudy O (870), and I conclude that I am doing something wrong. I apply the Gudy to the bookboards (Eterno Bookboard), but when I attempt to peel the Gudy from the bookboards to expose the adhesive, the adhesive comes away with the plastic backing, rather than adhering to the bookboards. I had assumed the Gudy O was something like the double tack sold in Art Supply houses.
Can you give me some advice?
