If your imprint template is on a sacrificial foil (included with our Desktop R2P NanoImprinter), and you are using the double-sided adhesive tape – the foil itself can be removed from the cylinder, as it is the easiest method to manage without any risk that cleaning chemistry is exposed to the imprint cylinder.

If your imprint template is on the soft PVC, most likely you will have issues from the adhesive tape, which is why when mounting on the soft layer, we advise against using adhesives, since it is slightly adhesive itself. We also recommend using only low tack tape to secure the edges.
