We cannot guarantee that Grade 2 Tidi-Patches® won’t remove the finishes on the surfaces you wish to stick them to. For this reason, we recommend that you test one on an identical surface before sticking them across your project. Tidi-Cable will happily supply up to 10 replacement strips to any UK customers who have purchased grade 2 Tidi-Patches® and have used some to carry out tests.

The product has been tested and then removed from a wall that had been painted 8 days prior to being photographed. The paint was magnolia Vectra® Matt Emulsion on a plastered wall, with no base coat. Ten identical tests like the one in the video were carried out, with none of them removing paint. A video of this is available upon request. A tiny residue remained, which installer wiped off with a damp cloth.
