Recommended cutting depth: about 0.82 mm (.0322”). Please take care when cutting: The aim is to cleanly cut through the polymer and lightly score the base polyester, this will ensure clean removal of the polymer. The deeper the cut goes into the base material will have an influence on the life of the product. Too deep will shorten the life. Please ensure that the cutting depth is always constant. Avoid pulling at large areas that are not cut cleanly when removing as this will lift the areas that need to remain.
