Take 15 seconds per strip

Always practice removing patches on test surface
We cannot guarantee that Grade 2 Tidi-Patches® won’t remove the finishes on the surfaces you wish to stick them to. For this reason, we recommend that you test one on an identical surface before sticking them across your project. Tidi-Cable will happily supply up to 10 replacement strips to any UK customers who have purchased grade 2 Tidi-Patches® and have used some to carry out tests. The video above shows a Tidi-Patch® being removed from a wall that had been painted 8 days prior to being filmed. The paint used was magnolia Vectra® Matt Emulsion on a plastered wall, with no base coat. Ten identical tests like the one in the video were carried out, with none of them removing paint. A video of this is available upon request. A tiny residue was left, which was wiped off by hand.
