* Die Cutting Notes: 7 replaces 3ER (eg. V717 instead of V713ER) and 8 replaces 4ER to specify 12pt. release board (easy release is standard on release board used for kiss cutting). For cost and processing reasons on thin products only, convertors may prefer to buy our tape grade version with extra release on the foam side (eg. V710XR instead of V713ER), which enhances reverse unwinding the material. However, they need to be aware of the yield loss equal to the roll circumference as well as the machine direction compression that this causes, which is why thick products are not acceptable for this type of processing (see Helpful Hints #2).
