3.5 Mil Cast Wrap Film with Long-term, Gray, Removable, Repositionable, Pressure Activated Adhesive with Non-visible Air Release Channels
Colors: 7 year expected outdoor performance, 3 year vertical and 1 year horizontal warranty period
Neon colors have no warranty for fading. Expected outdoor life in direct sunlight is less than three months. Fluorescent Neon colors fade much faster than normal colors. Note: Reduction in fading can be helped with overlamination, prevention of stretched areas which fade even faster, and removal from high U.V. times during the day.
Gloss colors can sometimes have a haze/blotchiness/mottling that can usually be eliminated with heat. Even the shipping box can create surface impressions that can also be eliminated with heat.
Beware: Matte finishes can become permanently glossed when too much heat is applied during installation.
Matte finishes must be cleaned often to maintain a beautiful finish. Stubborn stains may be removed with vigorous use of liquid adhesive remover combined with Magic Eraser pads.
Patterns/textures/metallics: 5 year expected outdoor performance, 3 year vertical and 1 year horizontal warranty period
Expected outdoor performance on chrome is 1 year applied to a flat vertical, vehicle surface
The opacity of these films vary and should be considered when installing
Available in 60″ width, allowing most vehicles to be wrapped without seams
Invisible air release channels assure fast and easy virtually bubble-free applications
No overlaminate required, however, overlaminates have been shown to improve the cleanability of matte colors and, increase the fade resistance of neon colors
Watercraft graphics applied above static water line only
Note: Textured, dead matte, metallic, pearl and color flip films may have a directional characteristic in their appearance. For the best overall appearance, do not alternate between lengthwise and widthwise graphic panels for any color
Caution: Always pre-test vinyl installation on vehicles. Do not install if there is any adverse or negative impact on sensors and/or other safety-related equipment on the intended vehicle.
Warning: During installation it is critical to prevent “dragging” the adhesive side of wrap vinyls over edges and flat surfaces. Abrasion caused by dragging can result in “adhesive dots” or “sanding” under the surface of the vinyl and make it appear to have many small bumps. This is usually not repairable. For more information and installation advice, please view the video below titled “Avoid Dots/Adhesive lines”.
Film colors can vary slightly from roll to roll. For the most consistency, please purchase a full roll. We are unable to guarantee consistency with multiple orders of cut yardage.
