Thanks to its special composition, everyone, even non-professionals, can easily and quickly customise any type of car and vehicle. The special adhesive with low initial adhesion, Slide&Tack literally "slides" on the surface to be customised, thus facilitating correct positioning and accelerating application. It is only during application that the adhesive is activated, reaching optimal adhesion within 24 hours.
