Do you use the 3m primer for plates if not what do you use?

I was using a permanent marker but I switch back to 3M tape have little or no issues with plate lifts.

Same here, 3M primer for both 3M and Tesa tapes. Permanent marker when we run out of primer, also (altough my colleague noted the red marker fits better than black, no clue why :smile: )

Heat gun on plate breaks.. Heat up sticky back (with plate already laid) to re melt adhesive as it is heating up rolling edges of plate.. Takes 3 secs
To heat and roll
