Add the adhesive to the seem from the back side of the material and to the full sheets. After applying the material to the required area, the adhesive must have time to harden. Once the adhesive has hardened pull off the tape and slightly sand over the edge with a fine sandpaper. Depending on the requirement the corner can also be applied edge on edge and then sanded to the correct extent.
