Centuri Space Shuttle / Fasson Crack 'N Peel question

Post by Rockmanz » Fri, 06 Nov 1998 04:00:00

Greetings all,

I'm going to clone a Centuri Space Shuttle (KC-6/5066) and I have a question
about the trim tab sheet. The text file provided by JimZ states use Fasson
"Crack 'N Peel". From what I understand about this material is that it's kind
of like the stuff used for laminating cards or pictures to prevent them form
getting dog eared or soiled.

Am I on the right track? Can I use this laminating material for this model?

Best Regards,

Hi, Mark,

Crack N' Peel is a pressure sensitive product manufactured by Fasson. Normally
it comes in the form of a paper of some sort (white usually, but also many
different colors, plus metallic foils) with an adhesive on the back side and a
peel off liner to protect the adhesive. It's the type of material that is used

want to pursue this further. I'm a printer by trade and a BAR. I use Crack N
Peel all the time. I'm not  sure this is what you want. My feeling is that you
may want to check out Office Depot , Office Max, etc. for a product made by
Hammermill. It is a clear pressure sensitive vinyl or acetate that is made for
inkjet and laser printers.I'm not sure of the name of it but it comes in 8-1/2"
x 11" sheets and is about $15.00 for 14 sheets. I haven't tried this product
yet, but when I start making rocket decals(soon), this is the product I'll try
first. I hope this helps you.

    Well, no, *real* Fasson Crack 'N Peel is a self-adhesive paper
    stock. I have some of this stuff at home (name brand), and it is
    heavier than regular Avery label stock. The adhesive is much more
    aggressive too.

The (laserprintable) label stock that came with my CD-labeling kit is
1) heavier, 2) more opaque (metallic back layer of some kind) and 3)
more agressively adhesive than typical label stock.
