Applying vinyl to fresh paint

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any tips on applying vinyl to fresh paint (especially matthews) and not get gas bubbles in vinyl. We always have to wait 2-3 days for paint to cure. No problem most of the time, but there is always that hurry up job that needs done tomorrow. Any thoughts, tips or tricks?

Thanks,

Its not the Vinyl itself, its the application tape that leaves the marks and damages.  

I try not to apply anything to the new painted surfaces. One mistake and you have to do the entire job over.

I'm going to assume the bubbles happening is a result of the paint gassing?  Similar to pulling off a fresh masking from a acrylic sheet, give it some time.

Matthews also makes an accelerator to add to the paint but you'll still have to wait a day minimum, longer if your shop is cool.

Learned the hard way - even with a rush job - just not worth having to start all over if you don't give paint enough time to cure.  We use the additive to speed up the Matthews paint and it still is too soft to work with the next day after painting.
