SYSTEM SOLUTION PLACARDS
Our Placards system solution consists of a total of four components. In addition to our proven BOXLAB Placards with clever peel-off tab, these also include our BOXLAB BIO cleaner, a squeegee and the practical and hazard-free plastic scraper for the foolproof removal of old Placards..
Correct attachment and removal of placards
For us, placards are much more than just labels. That’s why applying a placard is not just about sticking it on. The entire and proven BOXLAB process always begins with the correct preparation and cleaning of the surface. Because even the best placards can only develop their adhesive power to a limited extent on dirty surfaces. In the worst case, this can even lead to the placard no longer complying with legal requirements in this condition.
A point that is neglected by many, but is in fact of decisive importance for the legal conformity of the affixed placard. In order to be able to develop its certified adhesiveness, a placard requires a correspondingly clean substrate. Otherwise, the Placard will not stick to the corresponding substrate, but only to dirt and dust. As a result, a placard not only loses its seawater resistance from a legal point of view, but also the adhesive strength required to adhere permanently. The result is placards that fall off during prolonged transport, rain or other weather-related influences. To prevent this, we have developed a special, fast-volatilizing cleaner based on BIO alcohol.

Spray the cleaner onto the surface 3x from a distance of approx. 20cm. Make sure that the spraying intervals correspond approximately to the size of the placard.
From top to
Using a clean paper or cotton cloth, wipe the cleaner in vertical strips from top to bottom. This will create a cleaned area, which should be about 40x40cm.
The main step and actual core process – First detach the top corner of the placard a few centimeters from the backing paper. This is possible even with gloves thanks to our unique product design and is no problem. In combination with consistent use of a flexible squeegee and with the necessary contact pressure for correct and bubble-free application, the Placard can develop its full adhesive power and complies with all legal requirements.
Attach upper corner
of the placard
Fold the detached backing paper back and apply the placard to the upper corner by hand. Be sure to align the placard vertically and apply sufficient pressure. The upper corner should be attached to a protruding bead.
vertically from top
Grasp the folded flap and start to apply the placard with the squeegee from top to bottom at the corner already attached. Hold the squeegee at as steep an angle as possible. At the same time, slowly pull the backing paper down on the reverse side.
Loosen the backing paper from the placard shortly before reaching the bottom corner and pull the squeegee over the bottom corner of the placard with increased pressure. After removing the backing paper, repeat the process one or two times over the entire height of the placard.

Now carefully grasp one corner of the placard with your hand. Carefully stretch the placard to the left or right. Now use the squeegee to first apply the placard to the slanted surface.
Press placard into edge
and fix corner
When applying especially to inside edges, be careful not to allow air bubbles to form. Slow application helps here. It also helps to lift the still loose corner slightly to increase the pressure in the edge. To attach the corner, you can hold it closer to the container again.
Remove old placards
As with all our system solutions, we at BOXLAB Services think holistically. That’s why we provide you with our hazard-free plastic scraper, a unique tool that allows you to remove placards with ease. Completely without risk of injury. Our plastic scraper creates a contact surface for you, which you can then grab with your hand to remove the placard from the surface. Thanks to our BOXLAB plastic scraper, dangerous razor blades, cutter knives, metal squeegees or even peeling off with fingernails are finally and definitively a thing of the past.
Remove old blade
of the security scraper
The plastic blades of our hazard-free plastic scraper are very durable. If a blade does need to be replaced, simply push it out of the holder with your thumb from top to bottom.
Insert new blade
into the scraper
Once you have used the blade, you can turn it 180 degrees and use it again. Insert the new plastic blade into the plastic scraper from the bottom up and press the blade into the holder of the scraper.
Place the scraper at a flat angle on the bottom corner of the placard. Use the ergonomic shape of the scraper and position your thumb in the area provided for this purpose.
to remove placard
Now press the scraper with a little pressure under the edge of the placard to create an attack surface of about 2-3cm height that you can grip. Depending on the age of the placard, the required pressure can be stronger or weaker.
Pull placard vertically
Make sure to stand frontally in front of the placard and detach the placard from the container at an angle between 45 and 90 degrees.
If it is necessary to use more force in the area of the center of the placard to release the placard, reduce the angle at which you release the placard. You can also use two hands.
