How to Apply BLADESHARK Hockey Tape
BLADESHARK™ fits both left- and right-handed hockey blades, and is applied to both sides of the blade.
Identify which BLADESHARK™ applique goes on which side by matching its shape to the shape of the blade and follow the instructions below.
BLADESHARK™ is tough, waterproof, and durable. It can last 15-20 hours on the ice.
Remove all tape, wax and dirt from blade. Clean using a mild, non-oily solvent, such as naptha or lacquer thinner. (Goo Gone has oils, see Step 3)
Step 2 (if necessary)
Lightly buff blade with a light abrasive to dull high gloss finish if necessary. Do not sand through finish layer. This will create a light dust.
Wipe sanded surface again with a clean solvent-dampened cloth, and allow to dry. Rubbing alcohol or Windex work great!
Separate backing liner from BLADESHARK and position over blade leaving approximately 1/4 inch margin around the bottom and tip of blade and press down evenly
Repeat for opposite side, again leaving approximately 1/4 inch margin around the bottom and tip of blade.
Press BLADESHARK evenly onto the blade, working from center toward ends and edges. Make sure BLADESHARK is smooth and free of any air pockets.
This should be your finished look. BLADESHARK bonding to blade activates best in warm environments. Allow to set overnight indoors for best results. Sunshine, a warm car or a hairdryer also speed bonding time in a pinch.
