Adhesive-backed Insignia material in red is a high-tack, residue free polyester that is often used for sail numbers, insignia and as an economical repair tape. Being polyester, Insignia is inherently UV resistant, but will break down faster than acrylic, vinyl or UV protected Dacron® in the sun. Insignia is easy to use, rarely needing to be sewn. It also features a grid on the paper backing to aid in patterning.
Insignia is easy to remove when numbers or insignia need to be replaced. When using it as a repair tape, if the rip you’re patching is larger than three inches the patch should be sewn in place. Rips three inches and under do not need to be sewn.
To properly install adhesive-backed Insignia, we recommend taking care to follow a few steps. If installing Insignia on older or wrinkled sailcloth, clean the area of the sail with 303® Multi-Surface Cleaner or a 50/50 water and alcohol solution prior to installation. Be sure your environment is right for installing Insignia—we recommend 68° F to 90° F. During installation, be sure to smooth out the Insignia, removing any bubbles. Then let it lie flat overnight while the bond cures.
