Additional info

Removal requires heat and/or chemicals. A chemical remover system is available for graphics printed with solvent-based ink. Follow the procedures in 3MTM Instruction Bulletin 6.5 for using film remover R-221 and adhesive remover R-231 and for additional removal details.

This film has a pressure-activated adhesive that allows the film to slide easily on the substrate, be positioned with light finger pressure, and repositioned if it is not in the right place. However, by design so that a good adhesive bond is established, the positionability feature is lost:

·  when firm pressure is applied with a squeegee or other application tool

·  at application temperatures above 38°C (100°F) even if only light finger pressure was used for tacking

·  if any part of the film is removed from the original liner and reapplied to the same or another liner
