The Make‐it‐Match™ Pro Starter Kit comes with the Plank Skinner™, a canvas storage bag, a smoother, a double‐head pressure roller, 3 rolls of MatchWrap™ 90, and 2 rolls of MatchWrap™ 125. The Plank Skinner™ is a patent pending tool designed to aid flooring professionals with surface customization of flooring profiles. The Plank Skinner™ is used for the removal of the decorative wear layer of a rigid LVP product. It makes this process efficient with little physical effort without disfiguring the layer. It is made of aircraft grade aluminum to be light weight and long lasting.
It consists of a drill attachment on one end and a specially grooved shaft on the other end. It attaches to any standard drill. It can skin planks up to 12 inches wide and up to 40 mils thick. See the Techniques section of the Make‐it‐Match website for tips, tricks, and videos. Patent Pending After the decorative wear layer has been removed from the plank it is then adhered to profiles using MatchWrap™. MatchWrap™ is a special double‐sided adhesive tape with a thin fabric carrier and white release paper. It is used for surface customization of flooring profiles. It is wrapped around any non‐matching or corresponding flooring profile or transition such as an end cap, t‐molding, stair nose, stair tread, floor vent, electrical outlet cover, etc. MatchWrap™ is easily conformed to and adheres to flooring profiles made of wood, PVC, plastic, rubber, vinyl, or metal. After the release paper is removed, the decorative wear layer or skin of a rigid vinyl plank is then heated with a heat gun and conformed to the profile shape while it is being adhered to the outside layer of the MatchWrap™ adhesive tape. This results in a perfectly matching profile. Profiles customized using MatchWrap™ can instantly be installed and subjected to foot traffic.
There is no need to wait. Unlike contact tapes, which are not designed for profile surface customization, MatchWrap™ will not experience adhesive displacement issues over time or visible rut like indentations in the surface of the profile. Unlike contact spray adhesives, MatchWrap™ adhesive tape is quick, clean, odorless, non‐flammable, and VOC‐free. Additionally, the very initial bond of MatchWrap™ is forgiving which helps the flooring professional during the surface customization process.
