The nature of the beast is that paper board rolls develop a memory, and that memory can make it difficult to anchor the board down with tape. The Bend Back Method is an easy way to reverse that memory. It consists of two steps that require no tools and ensures a flat install of paper board floor protection.
Step 1: You’ll want to grab the end of the roll and step back about 3 logos. Hold the board straight up with a hand on each side. Reverse roll the board away from you; until it comes in contact with itself. Then slide the cut end of the board up against the back of the board until it is returns to the vertical position.
