EZGrip's name derives not only from its ease of printing, but also its simple installation. No complex preparation, no heat and no certified installers needed! In fact, EZGrip is design so that end-users can install printed graphics!
1.) SURFACE PREPARATION:
Sweep area free from dirt and debris. If the surface has an oily residue, it is recommended to clean the surface with a proper cleaner to remove the residue. Make sure area is completely dry before attempting install. Align your graphic on the install surface to ensure graphic fits as desired. If precise placement is required, use masking tape to mark your edge lines.
2.) PEEL BACK RELEASE LINER:
Once you're ready to install, we recommend flipping the graphic over so that the printed side is face down. Peel back release liner exposing the adhesive. On large graphics (2ft. or larger) we recommend pulling the release liner only partial way at first. You will pull the release liner as you adhere the graphic to the floor. 3.) INSTALLATION:
When ready, flip your graphic back over and position the graphic in place. Starting at the edge, begin installing the graghic from the middle outward, working out any air bubble that may develop. EZGrip features pressure-sensitive adhesive so the more pressure you use, the stronger the initial bond. Use your hands at first or a rubber J-roller LIGHTLY
, to ensure proper alignment. If your graphic is mis-aligned, pull up the graphic and try again. Once your graphic is aligned properly, simply work your way across the graphic until the entire graphic is fully in place. (If installing a large image, you'll want to pull the release liner as you move along.) Lastly, APPLY FIRM PRESSURE
using a rubber J-roller across the entire surface of the graphic. Again, the more pressure you use, the stronger the initial bond. As a final step, it's always best to roll over the edges of the graphic one last time to ensure edges are adhered.
That's it! Your EZGrip floor graphic is installed! IMPORTANT NOTES & FAQ'S Are EZGrip Graphics repositionable?
A: No. Due to the longevity requirements of durable floor graphics, a specially-formulated adhesive is used on EZGrip material. It is designed to hold graphics in place for as long as possible. This gives EZGrip Graphics the ability to stand up to high volume pedestrian traffic, shopping carts, suitcases and other elements. Any repositionable graphic will fail much sooner in these types of environments. Note:
During initial install, if EZGrip becomes mis-aligned, you may peel it up and reposition. However, as with any graphic, dirt impedes the graphics ability to adhere to the surface. If the floor is dirty, adhesion may be compromised if repositioning is necessary.
For large graphics that require tiling multiple pieces together, we recommend hiring an experienced installer.
