Looking for a low-tack wiping solution that properly removes dust and dirt from your surface, but does not harm and strip your finish? Trimaco’s new Pro Blue Tack Cloth is the answer! Designed for delicate surfaces, this tack cloth is perfect for refinishing and use after a base coat, final coat, and clear coat.
A tack cloth, sometimes referred to as a tack rag, is a necessity in the painting industry. Professionals and home improvement enthusiasts use tack cloths to wipe down a surface, picking up any loose particles of dust prior to painting. If dust and dirt is not removed, it can create an uneven paint job.
However, a traditional tack cloth can be too sticky for some surfaces. When using a tack cloth in between coats, or on delicate surfaces, it’s important to use a low tack option to avoid stripping and harming the finish on the surface.
When painting in the automotive industry, a car is subject to multiple coats. Using microfiber cloths, cotton rags, or cheesecloth are also not as effective as they often leave contaminants like sawdust or remnants of the painting process.When transitioning from the base coat to the final coat, professionals will use a tack cloth to attract and retain loose fibers. A low-tack, tack cloth is necessary in the automotive industry to avoid harming these coats. This Pro Blue Tack Cloth is safe to use with all types of paint and is gentle on delicate surfaces.
In the marine industry, a low-tack wiping option is necessary to avoid “fisheye” or cratering defects. Surfaces on a boat are delicate and should be handled with care and properly cleaned prior to any paint application to avoid these uneven looks.
