ATG Tape is an adhesive transfer tape where the adhesive is “reverse wound” meaning the adhesive is wound on the outside of the roll, ideal for use in an adhesive transfer gun where the tape is threaded around the roller at the nose of the gun adhesive side out.
To operate the ATG gun you squeeze the trigger, releasing the roller and then press the nose against the surface to be glued and pull back. The roller rolls out the double-sided adhesive, peeling up the liner as it goes, threading it back into the gun.
Step by Step
Starting with the dispenser open, position the roll in the unwind portion of the dispenser. Make sure that the roll is notched into place.
Holding the handle and the trigger with one hand, begin to pull the leader (starter part of the ATG Tape) with your other hand. Pull the leader over the first rubber roller. Pull the leader under the second rubber roller. Continue to pull the leader over the roll of ATG.
Close the dispenser.
Squeeze the trigger, releasing the roller and then press the nose against the surface to be glued and pull back.
