    As for tape marks being left. The right masking tape doesn't do it unless left to cool too much. Problem is, sourcing that masking tape is becoming harder. Trial and error from your local suppliers if often needed as the sticky residue is left with many.



    Thirdly, the black backed coasters about do not have a raw finish. These will not have this problem at all but pose a different issue. The white print area is fragile and easily chipped when removing the plastic coating. Need to adapt a technique such as using tape to remove it. Nothing is ever easy.
    Ive been using the tape from xpres with their unisub coasters, 2 small pieces in each corner removed straight away, never had a problem..

    Have run tests tonight on these coasters on a new batch that arrived today and our previous batch. Pressed at 200 degrees for 70 seconds with 20mm heat tape across the back. Left to cool and peal with no effect on the back. Video taken to show full process down twice if you want to sit through 3 or 4 minutes! Will upload to YouTube or somewhere if anyone interested to watch!! I know there are a couple of people reporting a problem but our supplier nor us can replicate. I also tried with 6mm heat tape but didnít video it, again no effect on reverse.

    I have been following this thread with interest but am now confused. The original post was about the cork backing coming away when removing the tape like the unisub ones. The video only shows some residue from the heat tape and not the backing coming away. I do not disagree that the tape makes are not good to see but this is not the original point of the post. Or am I missing something?

    Here is the video
    https://youtu.be/VS1sxfvr_38

    Backing is smooth to the touch after pressing and the tape removes cleanly.

    The orginal post is about raw backs and thats not residue it's damage, if it were residue you could wipe it off with a damp cloth.

    @bigj2552 if you want to save those damaged ones and make them saleable you could add felt to the backs.

    Taking bits of the coaster backing with it when removing heat tape after pressing ....NOW/BUT >>>


    What we want to know BEFORE we buy another lot from them is.....
    Is anyone else getting the same probs only with bms own make of coasters ?

    If not, we can only put it down to the new batch of brown heat tape that just came in around same time the new batch of bms coasters came in....
    Maybe the new batch of brown heat tape is more tacky than usual....
    I have edited the original post and it clearly states taking bits of the backing off with the tape. Not what is shown on the video. I accept that tape marks are not good but this is a different issue to the original post of the backing being removed.

    He also states "exactly what the unisub ones did". I have the unisub ones, if you let the tape touch the back then hot or cold peel the tape will lift the fibers leaving a rough surface and sometimes bits will be stuck to the tape. What the video shows looks the same as using the unisub ones to me.
