Pasters are More Than a Repair Tool

Are you looking to save money training with your thermal scope without forfeiting results?  

At IR Tools we are conscious about stretching your “thermal dollars,” without compromising your Thermal scope training.  

 We took our popular Upright film used for downrange training targets and built 25m and 50m thermal Pasters. 

Pasters are more than a repair tool!

In addition to repairing your target, pasters are terrific for zeroing, aim points, and various close and intermediate training scenarios.  

Why Upright Pasters?    

They are 100% hassle free! 

Upright pasters like our entire suite of Upright targets DO NOT require an angle or tilting.    

The randomized micro-thermal reflectors show a superior contrast unlike any other thermal target materials.

While other thermal pasters will ask you to tilt your target stand, the upright pasters stick to any vertical stand.

In seconds you are aiming and firing.  

No Limitations for the 25m Upright Paster  

The 25m pasters can be grouped together in unlimited formations and shapes. If you need a larger aim point stick a few more pasters on your backer. 

Build your training scenario exactly how you want it to be.

There is no limit to what you can do!  

In addition to using a paster group, a single paster added to a larger target will give you an exact aim point.

Stick the paster on the head of an E-type – aim and fire.

50m Upright Paster 

If you need to zero your weapon at at greater distance the 50m pasters is a great option. 

The 3″ x 3″ diamond paster is an easy peel stick to any paper target or chosen backer.

Enjoy a hassle free, sharp contrast on any vertical stand.



Large Target or Small Paster?  


If you are thinking I’m trying to talk you out of a larger training target, I’m not.

In fact,  a small paster will never replace the life-like training benefits from a large E-type or Boar target. Although, sticking pasters on larger targets for accurate aim points is recommended.

But at the same time, IR Tools understands budget restraints and wants to offer a less expensive, accurate option for your Thermal sight training.  

You trade a larger life-like target for a small, simple, aim point. 

In the end, you get the same ridiculously great contrast.

We want to keep your training regimen simple and hassle-free.   

Working with thermal weapon sights does not have to be hard or magical.

Regardless if you train with a head or weapon-mounted optics, Upright pasters will help you cross the finish line.
