The Vinyl Zapper®

The Vinyl Zapper® removes vinyl, adhesive residues, reflecting foils, stickers, decals and double-sided adhesive tape from acrylic paints on metal surfaces, bright metals, wood, aluminium and trim panels. The patented design of our German-made Vinyl Zapper® ensures that the paintwork is left undamaged.

The premier solution for removing adhesive residues from mouldings — and the amazing result: no damage of paintwork.

A specially engineered material consisting of a natural rubber base ensures no paintwork damage or smearing on the working surface despite a rotational operating speed of 3,500 rpm.

The Vinyl Zapper® is mounted onto an Adaptor system of 23 mm width and can either be used with the drive unit MBX® Pneumatic HD or Electric.

Frequently asked questions

Vinyl Zapper®

What applications is the Vinyl Zapper® suitable for?

The Vinyl Zapper® can be used to remove all kinds of adhesive sticker from a range of surfaces. This includes vinyl nameplates, stickers, reflecting foils, double-sided adhesive tape, decals and adhesive residues.

What types of surface can the Vinyl Zapper® be used on?

The Vinyl Zapper® is primarily used on painted car body parts. Thanks to its special, patented design, it goes about its job without damaging the paint below.

In addition, the Vinyl Zapper® can, of course, also be used on other materials, such as bright metals, aluminum or wood.

It is also suitable to a limited extent for use on water-based paints, fiberglass-reinforced plastic and acrylic glass.

Which drive units can the Vinyl Zapper® be used with?

The Vinyl Zapper® is designed to be used with the MBX® Electric and MBX® Pneumatic drive units. These units guarantee the correct speed for using the Vinyl Zapper® and optimum control of the tool.

What types of surface can be prepared (cleaned) with a Vinyl Zapper®?

This depends very much on the type and composition of the objects to be removed. The surface and how the user handles the tool also play a role. For this reason, it’s not possible to make any general predictions regarding the area of stickers, etc. – that is, how many square feet – that can be removed using a Vinyl Zapper®.

Why are the rubber segments of the Vinyl Zapper® broken?

Check whether the Vinyl Zapper® is mounted the right way round. The arrows on the Vinyl Zapper® indicate the direction of rotation. This means that the rubber segments must point in the direction opposite to the direction of rotation, so that they bend backwards slightly during work.
