Skudo Tack-Mats are your peel and stick surface protection solution. Construction Tack-Mats are applied by aligning the Tack-Mat against the wall or surface edge, then peeling the release paper and pressing it down.

For best results, work in pairs and press the Mat in with a dry paint roller.

  1. Tack-Mat Application Step 1

    Step 1:

    Start by finding where the release paper joins the clear plastic film on the back of the Tack-Mat.

    Peel back 92 to 121 cm of the release paper. Fold this section back underneath the Tack-Mat roll.

  2. Tack-Mat Application Step 2

    Step 2:

    Making sure to properly align the roll to ensure a straight application. Attach the tack side to the surface, press in the Tack-Mat firmly.


  3. Step 3:

    Ensure that the right side of the Tack-Mat is facing toward the inside of the area to be covered.

    This side has the plastic film on the back extended past the edge of the Mat – this side goes underneath the next section or application pass.

  4. Step 4:

    Once one row is completed, unpeel 122 – 152 cm of the release paper and align the edge with the edge of the first row.

    Keep Tack-Mat pulled tight, overlap the Mats by 25.4 mm, smoothing Mat onto surface.

    The Tack-Mat will stick to the surface of the other Mat.

  5. Step 5:

    Continue the process until the entire area is covered. The Skudo Tack-Mat can be lifted for inspection or readjusted as needed at any time.

    Now your surface is protected.

  6. Stairs:

    Skudo Tack-Mats are a great solution for protecting stairs on any type* (such as Concrete, Marble, Tile, and Hardwood)

    Start from the bottom and pull the release paper up while moving the roll up the stairs – ensure to push / press the Tack-Mat down onto all the treads and risers.

    *Please see your Skudo representative to determine which version of Tack-Mat is best suited for your project. 


To remove Tack-Mats, simple lift a corner and peel it off the surface.  If desired, you can re-use Tack-Mat in another area as long as the back coating remains sticky.
