HOW TO APPLY DECALS & HOW TO USE GLUE

 

 

 

 

  

DECAL PERFECT LACQUER :

remove excess glue and bubbles with a damp sponge . 

do not try to remove the adhesive under the decal , even if it seems that it is thick it’s normal, and it will completely disappear with the drying.

LET SOME GLUE UNDER THE DECAL

When drying the glue will retract, the decal will perfectly fits the helmet. Once the glue is dry, not before 5 to 7 days, you can still improve the resistance by exposing the helmet in the sun for a quarter of an hour, or by passing a heat gun shot (set not too hot ! ) the aim is to heat it.

IMPORTANT : Final drying time is 5 to 7 days. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO THE OLD OR BEFORE THE HEAT ! Before and during the phase of asking a decal is very fragile to handle so with great caution. A problem during installation, a question about how to use decals? contact me.

DECAL PERFECT REPLICA & PRE-AGED

C'est de la décalcomanie classique, comme pour les maquettes. Trempez le decal dans l’eau durant une bonne dizaine de secondes, sortez le puis attendez et vérifiez qu’il glisse de son papier support. Recommencez à le tremper si nécessaire. Le temps d’attente peu varier en fonction des températures. Quand le decal glisse parfaitement sur son support papier, avec le doigt mouillez le casque là où sera collé le decal, puis transferez-le. Vous avez quelques secondes pour l’ajuster. Sinon placez 1 ou 2 gouttes d’eau en bordure haute du decal pour que l’eau passe dessous ce qui vous permettra de finir de l’ajuster. Passez pour finir une éponge humide pour chasser les éventuelles bulles.

ASTUCE : vous pouvez utiliser une de nos colles spéciales décalcomanies que vous trouverez ICI

IMPORTANT : le temps de séchage définitif est de quatre à six jours en moyenne. Avant et durant la phase de pose une décalcomanie reste très fragile, à manier donc avec la plus grande précaution. Un soucis lors de la pose? contactez-moi.

 You apply a layer of adhesive resin, do not be afraid to extend well beyond the dimensions of the decal.

At the same time , you also put glue resin on any item, here a lid. It will serve as a witness to see when the glue becomes very sticky.

You also put the decal twenty seconds in water and then you put it flat.

 We must apply the decal at the good time. The glue is a natural resin diluted with turpentine. When turpentine evaporates, the resin will become sticky, very sticky.

The resin is sticky when put a little stronger finger. so you have to wait while evaporating the turpentine will make the resin more sticky, we see it if we put the finger without pressing.

Then the resin will become less sticky if the finger is placed, but she will remain tacky if the finger seconded  above. it is at this point that we must place the decal.
