How to use knifeless tape system to cut the car wrap vinyl ?

Aug 29, 2021

The knifeless tape system is currently the best one on the market. It does not snap and works to cut perfect lines every time.
Use it when you have certain areas that would require cutting of the vinyl on the surface of the vehicle, thus risking cutting into the paint finish and damaging the vehicle.
When you want to add stripes, accents or have to put seems into deep recesses or places that are too wide for the vinyl width.

Step One
Apply WrapCut to the surface with the filament (tape edge) positioned on the desired trim line. Leave about 4 inches of tape exposed beyond the edge of the film so that the cutting filament can be located. Press both the film and tape down firmly to the surface.

Step Two
To create a pull tab, use a cutting tool to make a cut or incision in the tape approximately 1 to 2 inches from the end of the tape. Do not cut through the filament.

Step Three
Placing a finger on the tape where the cut was made, tug the end piece of tape, freeing the end piece of the tape to create a pull tab.

Step Four
Using the pull tab, pull the bare filament free from the tape and then in the direction of the vinyl right up to the edge where the cutting will begin.

Step 5
While pressing the film down at the edge where the filament enters, give the filament a quick tug to begin cutting through the vinyl.

Step Six
Continue pulling the filament with a steady motion along the edge of the tape and at a 45 degree angle towards the direction of the trim line.

This picture shows the tape being removed simultaneously with the film. The film can also be removed first, leaving the tape in place for removal afterwards.

Step Eight

This picture shows an alternative method whereby the film was removed from above the trim line, leaving the tape hidden below the remaining film. WrapCut tape is very strong allowing for easy removal from beneath the film without damaging the film edge.
