Vinyl sandblasting tape on a tombstone.

Vinyl sandblast tape is a, thick, grey plastic tape, this Vinyl sandblast tape is used to protect the mable stone or tombstone during the sandblasting process.

First the vinyl tape is passed through a vinyl cutter or printer where the tombstone inscription is cut out on the vinyl. This leaves a vinyl stencil behind. The vinyl is then placed on the stone surface and the lettering or images which have been cut out are removed as per picture below, 

The vinyl stencil adheres to the stone because of the adhesive on the tape which has now been exposed after removing the silicone release paper.

The tombstone stone surface is then sandblasted with the blast etching away at the area of the stone which is not covered by the vinyl. The rest of the stone surface is protected by the vinyl sandblast tape.

The vinyl is then removed, leaving behind the sandblasted inscription which is now engraved on the tombstone.

Sandblast tape

  • Excellent resistance to a variety of blast media
  • High adhesion to granite, marble and other stone surfaces, yet still removes cleanly
  • Cut designs are easy to see, reducing eye strain and increasing picking productivity
  • Allows for faster stencil to stone alignment and cleaner hole punching and tracking through commercial plotters.
  • Protects granite, marble and other stone surfaces during blasting operations

It is recommended that this stencil be applied to a warm, clean and dry surface. When the stencil is applied to cold stone surfaces it is possible for condensation to form as the stone warms. Condensation can affect the performance of the stencil’s rubber adhesive. So our vinyl sandblast tape will protect the stone and assist you to have a easier job when you start picking on the stone.
