S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • November 2017 • 51 Arlon's 6700 is a cast product film that conforms around deep textures making it easy to install. "We've seen the films used for unique applications where adhesion is doubted and, as a result, DPF 8000 was developed as a solution to questionable, hard-to- stick surfaces," she says. Beau Hommes, technical service engi- neer with 3M Commercial Solutions, says the Envision non-PVC print wrap films (LX and SV 480mC), now backed with Comply adhesive, are popular choices for textured surfaces, in part due to their pli- ability. "They provide excellent handling for installation in extreme temperatures, and offer great tensile strength to resist tear- ing during application," he says. "And the switch to Comply offers installers fine- tuned slideability, optimized initial track and non-visible air release that gives the customer a smoother appearance." High heat and a selection of hand tools are critical for install jobs, though Envision's slideability, its initial tack and non-visible air release help give the finished product a smoother appearance. Arlon Graphics' DPF 6700 and 8000 hard surface films have been used in a variety of outdoor applications, and can be applied to brick, concrete or virtually any wall surface.
