TECHNICAL DATA SHEET PERMAFLEX 6200


PERMACOLOR

Permacolor The PERMACOLOR system is a series of pressure-sensitive products used for mounting and protecting in the imaging industry. Pressure-sensitive PERMACOLOR provides fast, efficient processing through roll lamination techniques without the need for heat or drying.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PERMAFLEX Series is a family of relatively thick films that are coated with solvent acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive on one side. These unique films can be laminated to either one or both sides of photographic prints or transparencies to protect, enhance appearance and provide sufficient rigidity to eliminate the need for mounting to traditional flat substrates in many applications. These laminates also retain enough flexibility to allow images to be used in non-flat configurations such as on cylindrical displays. This feature also permits the laminate to be rolled for easy transport or storage.

DURABILITY

PF 6200 will give satisfactory performance:
up to 1 year when used as vertical display.
up to 9 months when used in the production of floor graphics.
(please refer to MACtac Floor Graphics User Guide)
The durability does not relate to the image protected but only to the laminating film.

Note: These end-use life estimates are based on accelerated ageing studies and outdoor exposure, under conditions experienced in vertical exposure and in ″normal″ temperate climates. Exposure to severe humidity and ultraviolet light, as in southern European countries, and also in tropical, sub-tropical or desert regions, will cause a more rapid deterioration. This also applies to polluted areas, high altitude and south-facing exposure.
On the floor, the graphics can be damaged by heavy-duty equipment. MACtac cannot be held responsible for any damage caused in this way. The durability of a floor graphics also depends on the preparation, application, cleaning, usage conditions and also type of flooring.

RECOMMENDATIONS

For outdoor use, care should be taken to protect the sides of the laminates with silicone in order to avoid water infiltration.
Due to the increasing number of new printing methods appearing on the market, it is important for the Converter to satisfy himself about the suitability of the PERMAFLEX film for the application to the printed image.

STORAGE

MACtac recommends that rolls be stored on end or suspended from the core.

TRANSPORT

allow the maximum amount of time after lamination, preferably overnight, before rolling for transport,
roll the largest diameter possible, no less than 30 cm diameter,
roll with the PERMAFLEX 6200 to the outside.

TRIMMING

allow at least one hour after lamination, 24 hours optimal,
support PERMAFLEX 6200 fully from below,
use a very sharp blade at an angle of 45°.
