A varnish still represents the most durable option to apply lettering in sign making. On difficult, uneven surfaces it often is the only option. Ever since the self-adhesive cutting stencil, masking tape by Regulus has been known for its qualities: It provides razor-sharp edges, will remain puncture-proof even if several layers are applied, and can be removed without leaving any residue, all of which allows you to work professionally with tarp, vehicles, facades, and awnings. In addition, paper stencils offer a significant benefit when compared to film: They are friendlier to the environment.
|Art. Number||Width (mm)||Length (m)|
Paint masks, cut by plotters or manually, for solvent based or water based laquers, for use on uneven or rough surfaces like:
Plastered walls (indoor and outdoor), concrete, wood, textiles, awnings, special paint and other surfaces where REGUpac RCS or REGUsign P20 cannot be used. Individual tests are always required in advance.
- High precision edges
- Simple weeding of small and large characters
- Perfect adhesion on the above mentioned surfaces
- No curl of the open edges with aqueous or solvent based laquers
- Precise edges even after long drying time
- Multiple layers of paint possible
- Can be removed without residues if applied on an appropriate surface

The surfaces must be dry and free of dust, grease, silicone or other
impurities which could influence the adhesion of the mask or the paint.
The temperature during the application must reach at least 15°C.
The best pressure of the knife is reached, if fine details are easy to weed
and the release liner is not cut.
The positive parts of the mask are removed with tweezers, a needle, a
knife or any other suitable tool.
A medium or high tack application tape (film or paper) should be used for
With a brush or a roller or by air brush, in multiple layers if required.
To achieve a good painting it is important to work thoroughly and to
choose the right degree of dilution of the paint as well as a paint thinner
adapted for the application. For this reason the recommendations of the
paint manufactuer must be observed imperatively.
The paint mask can only be removed after sufficient drying of the paint.
Special hints for lettering of façades:
Lettering only on fully dried paint at temperatures of 15°C minimum.
The adhesion of the stencil might be more difficult on paints, which are repelling dirt and water, as their ingredients might as well repel the adhesive of REGUsign PF2.
Please use low tack application tape for mounting the stencil on very rough or structured plaster. This ensures the easy removal of the application tape after mounting.
The edges of the stencil should be pushed against the surface using a brush. In order to avoid colours running under the edges, do not brush or roll the paint but knock a small quantity of colour in using a hard brush. To reduce a possible running of the colour in case of application on very structured surfaces, the edges of the stencil should be additionally lacquered with a ground colour.
