Re: [IP] Tape Not Sticking


You use IVprep and Mastisol?  We have been using Mastisol by itself and do
manage to get three days out of the site, but by the third day the edges all
around the set are coming up quite a bit.  I need to get this resolved
before pool season.  Do you let the IVprep dry completely before applying
the Mastisol?
