Imation Padding Adhesive: For use with Imation Uniform 20# Papers.
Quick and Easy Padding:
Imation Carbonless Paper is designed to fan apart into forms when used with Imation Fan-Out Padding Adhesive.
Jog the stack to align the paper and smooth out the edge to be padded.
Place the forms to be padded on a level surface. Cover stack with chipboard and weight to cover full width of edge to be padded. Use one pound of weight for every inch of width to be padded.
Place the weight even with the edge to be padded. You can also place 1/8" of bond paper on the under and top sides of the carbonless paper to be padded to protect against sticking to the board. A Padding rack, frame or cart can also be used to save time.
Use a clean, dry, natural-bristle brush and saturate the brush thoroughly with Imation Fan-Out Padding Adhesive. (A 2 1/2" brush will provide the best results). Immerse brush until fully loaded (It is important to have adequate adhesive at initial wetting of the dry edge of the paper).
Starting at the bottom of the stack, apply one coat of adhesive, holding the brush at a 40 degree angle and slowly moving it horizontally across the stack.
Continue up the stack, frequently re-filling the brush. Extend adhesive 1/8" around the corner to improve runnability when the formset requires a post-printing operation such as numbering. A second coat should not be applied.
Rinse the brush in water several times after finishing to preserve the brush's quality. Close the adhesive jar and use a damp rag to remove any adhesive that has spilled or dripped.
Let the forms dry for at least 15 minutes. Drying time factors include temperature, relative humidity and airflow. Let your forms sit for approximately one hour for best results and when you are padding tag into you sets. The job is ready when the stack is dry to the touch. When the forms are dry, remove the weight and fan them lightly with your thumbs, while holding the stack with your hands. The forms will "Fan-Out" into perfect sets and are then ready for use by your customers.
