Why use Tekmar TB-10, a water based pallet adhesive.

The Tekmar TB-10 is a bulk pallet adhesive. It is a non-aerosol water based adhesive, that dries almost instantly, has excellent flash resistance and holds its tack longer than virtually all other adhesives. It is applied via an affordable range of pneumatically driven spray systems that virtually eliminate over-spray, and also eliminates having to dispose of any aerosol cans.

When used, Tekmar TB-10 water based adhesive and the TARGET Applicator Systems are the perfect environmental solution, guaranteed to save ££’s over aerosols and other semi automatic systems.

Why remove tape from your screens ASAP.

If you have read our latest product of the week mailer (w/c 18th September) then you will have noticed it’s all about tape.

Tape has many uses, the main one being masking the edges of your screens.

However, when you leave tape on the screen for a long time it can become VERY tricky to peel off, as you can see from the video below.

Removing tape from your screen is a MUST before you put it in the DipTank ready to reclaim. This will be twice as hard if you don’t remove tape from the screen.
