WAX REMOVAL

Soften it up in the sun or with some warm water and scrape it off with a plastic flat wax comb (or piece of balsa) and then wipe it off with a rag and mineral turps and clean up with a soft clean dry t-shirt.

Applying

When applying, I found it best to start from the stringer (get someone to help you – with clean dry hands) - position the grip up to the location you want then working your way outwards towards the rails (preventing air pockets along the way). This I found to be best (better than horizontal - down the board application) for a bilateral symmetrical placement either side of the stringer. Also don't hold onto the adhesive for too long as it will come off on your finger & thus affect adhesion in that part of the grip.

Perfect for -

Surfboards

Skim boards

Foam boards

Learner boards

Surf Schools

Body boards

Tow boards

Rescue boards

Stand up paddle boards

Paddle boards

Wake boards

Row boats

Timber boat and fibreglass decks

Baths

Swimming Pools

 TRACTION GRIP INSTALLATION PROCEDURE:

 1. Thoroughly clean, removing all wax, dirt, oil and grease from surface area where you will be applying your VGT Traction products. For best results apply a non-oil based solvent such as mineral spirts, paint thinner, or denatured alcohol to remove any residue. Repeat process if residue persists. Rub down with dry cloth and let dry completely. DO NOT USE SURF WAX REMOVER SOLVENTS THEY LEAVE A RESIDUE THAT DOES NOT ALLOW VT ADHESIVE TO STICK TO SURFBOARDS.

 2, Lay the tape on the board and position it to suit. Use some masking tape to hold in position. Use a pencil to mark where you want to trim it. Leave it partially taped and trim it with some sharp scissors.

 3. Unpeel the protective backing paper, exposing adhesive. Carefully place exposed adhesive edge to stringer, and let it roll down using your finger to gently pass parallel with stringer then press down firmly.

 4. Make sure that you try to eliminate as many air bubbles as possible by smoothing down product onto surface while applying.

 5. If you have any air bubbles - use a pin to pop them and push the bubble out.

 6. Maximize traction by cleaning entire surface with Cleaning agent like jif (non-abrasive cleanser) and water-using a soft scrub brush.

In the water for the first surf- don’t forget to start with there may be some grim on the tape that needs to washed off – you can rub it in the water with your hand or some sand – or it will just wear off after half an hour surfing.
