Hi
I've been using RTape AT-60 for a few decal jobs now and it works great except for when it comes in contact with the sun, more specifically - temperature change. It wrinkles and bubbles like crazy. This is okay for me because I can just lift the tape/vinyl and squeegee it. My concern is more with selling to a customer and later they freak out because of all the wrinkles.

I've read about this happening but there wasn't a solution except to tell the customer about it.

So I was wondering if there is a different tape to use. I've heard people say that they use "r-tape clear conform". I went to the r-tape website to check it out and there are two different ones. AT-42-RLA® Clear Conform and 2576RLA® Clear Conform. Here.

Can anyone tell if any of these would be better to use for more "long term" application?

The stuff is very soft plastic. It also stretches under moderate squeegee pressure.
I far prefer the heavy duty paper TransferRite 782-U

Since I have a Mutoh solvent printer we never layer cut vinyl, so no need to ever use clear.
