StarCraft Metal Permanent Adhesive Decorative Film
Durability: 3-5 Years Outdoors
Adhesive: Clear Acrylic Permanent Pressure Senstive
Thickness: 3mil (76 micron)
Cut Settings: Generally this film can be cut on the same settings as other standard adhesive vinyl film. We do recommend small test cuts and to adjust pressure accordingly and as required.
Note: Life expectancy can vary depending on harshness of UV exposure and other environmental factors.
Due to the stiffness of this film, the sheets will not likely lay entirely flat, they will probably curl up or "hump" when in a stack. DO NOT attempt to roll them the opposite direction and unroll them to get them to lay flat. This can damage the film and also cause it to "tunnel" which is when the film lifts from the release liner and sort of bubbles up. This can be corrected by simply lifting the film gently from the release liner and gently using a squeegee or other flat edge to lay the film back town prior to cutting.
Cut & Application Limitations:
Due to stiffness of the film, smaller intricate cuts may be difficult to weed and work with, as well as have a lower tolerance for lifting from the surface after applied. We do not recommend sharp corners or edges as these may perpetuate peeling from the surface, especially if handled. Likewise, due to the stiffness of the film it is not recommended for textured surfaces. The film will work best if applied to smooth, shiny, clean, and wax-free surface.
Due to the stiffness of the film, when unrolled "tunneling" may occur which is when the film lifts from the release liner and bubbles or "tunnels" form. This can be corrected by simply lifting the film gently from the release liner and gently using a squeegee or other flat edge to lay the film back town prior to cutting.
