Overlapping Splice

How To Make an Overlap Splice
Overlap Splice

  1. Apply an ARclad® double-face tape at a 10° angle across the face of the roll. Wrap tape around the roll’s edges to stabilize loose sheet.
  2. Rub tape from center to outer edges with a metal squeegee held at a 45° angle for maximum adhesion. Crease excess paper with squeegee and remove tail.* Leave a narrow tail (1/8″ – 1/4″) of paper next to the tape edge.
  3. Rub tape from center to outer edge with a metal squeegee. Remove liner and adhere web to the exposed tape. Rub splice from center to outer edges to remove wrinkles.
  4. Finish splice by removing excess paper, leaving a tail of 1/8″ – 1/4″.   Be sure to trim excess tape from the ends of the splice.
