Recommendations:-Wet application is HIGHLY recommend (commercial based application fluids such as Rapid Tac II, Window Juice, etc. are suggested) for a complete list see technical link below.
- A suede Teflon squeegee or soft squeegee is recommend for Clear PVC films such as 255 to help in gliding across the surface. A hard edged application tool may scratch the film.
- Paper application tape is also useful in protecting the vinyl surface during installation.
- Completely evaporate inkjet solvents before application. Failure to do so may facilitate solvent penetration resulting in vinyl degradation.
