We have rubber coated plattens and we always use platten tape to cover them. What we now know is that you must first apply a base layer of tape, trim it real close to the platten edge and never remove it or print on it. Instead, apply a second layer of tape on top of the first and that one gets removed and replaced regularly when the plattens get too linty. Just be careful when removing the top layer that you don't lift up the base layer...it must stay on the platten forever. Our initial mistake was that we did not originally apply the base layer of tape. So it got linty like normal and when we tried to remove that layer it abosulety will not come off. We have about 30% of it off and a mess with the rest of it. We have tried every solvent and cleaner known to man, but nothing has worked so far to get back down to the clean rubber. Any ideas?
