Product Description

This IMAGin B-free GRUV GV429P 54" x 150' Gloss White Permanent Print Media is a 3.2 mil gloss white, soft calendared PVC film with permanent bubble free air egress opaque adhesive and an outdoor durability of 4 years. This film is designed for indoor or medium-term outdoor advertising and promotional applications on flat or simple curved surfaces. The use of PERMACOLOR ColorGard LUV or RAYZor overlaminates will extend the life of the graphic. GV429P is also great for bubble-free applications of indoor wall murals. This product is NOT intended for vehicle wraps, complex surfaces, cut lettering applications, or wet application installation methods.

  • Durability
    The outdoor durability of the unprinted film is 4 years. Overlamination of the inkjet-printed material with PERMACOLOR overlaminating films delays color fading that may occur over time. Color fading is mainly dependent upon the inks quality (see technical data sheets given by the ink manufacturers) and pressure sensitive media being used.

  • Shelf Life
    2 years from Date of Manufacture when stored at 60 to 77°F (15/25°C) and 50% relative humidity in the original package.

    To achieve the best possible print quality, please make sure that the correct ICC profiles or printer settings are used. Profiles can be obtained from our Distributors or can be downloaded from www.mactac.com/graphics. Printer and heater settings and ICC profiles can also be downloaded from some O.E.M. or software manufacturer’s websites. The ICC profiles are provided solely as a customer resource. Print environments, the individual nature of printing systems, inks and software can significantly affect output.

  • Chemical Resistance
    The film was adhered to an aluminum substrate 24 hours prior to testing. Samples were immersed in each chemical and later observed for adhesion.

    Chemical Time Immersed Observation
    5% Detergent 24 hours No Effect
    Water 24 hours No Effect
    SAE 20 Motor Oil 24 hours No Effect
    10% Hydrochloric Acid 10 min. No Effect
    10% Ammonium Hydroxide 10 min. No Effect
    Unleaded Gas 1 hour No Effect

  • Limitations
    Due to the wide variability of interior walls, sealants and paints, no claims for successful applications to or removal from painted wall surfaces are made by Mactac. It is the users’ responsibility to determine the products suitability for the intended wall.

    • 1) The user is responsible for determining the product’s suitability, including adhesion and if needed, removal characteristics when used in applications other than listed specifically in this Performance Guide.
    • 2) If there are any questions about applications, please contact your Mactac sales representative to discuss your requirements for recommendations.
    • 3) If this is a printed Performance Guide it is an uncontrolled document. Please check the Mactac website for the latest, most up-to-date version.

It is the customer’s responsibility to determine the suitability of any profile for use in their specific print environment.

  • Recommendations
    Always test your combination of B-free Gruv products, inks and laminating films prior to commercial use.

    • 1 Printing Conditions: Print in conditioned pressroom at ±73°F (23°C) and 50% RH. The maximum allowable ink saturation is 270%.
    • 2 Drying Step: It is critical the GV429R print is properly dried prior to cutting, lamination or application. We strongly recommend leaving the print open to the air (not rolled up in a tube) for a minimum of 24 hours prior to lamination or application. Residual solvents in the vinyl and adhesive will negatively affect the bubble free properties of the adhesive and can cause a significant build, or loss, in adhesion resulting in potential substrate or graphic failure and/or more residual adhesive being left behind upon removal. Additional hot air drying or IR drying will speed up the drying process and shorten the overall drying time.
    • 3 Laminating Conditions: If the printed graphic is likely to be exposed to corrosive liquids, smoke, fumes, and highly polluted areas or there is a likelihood of scratching, it is highly recommended to laminate with PERMACOLOR ColorGard LUV series overlaminating films.
    • 4 Not recommended for surfaces including, but not limited to rubber and plastic, aged paint (chalking) and metals (corrosion or oxidation), improperly cured paint, surfaces with poor paint-to-surface adhesion, oily surfaces, unpainted wood, etc.
    • 5 Application: See TA2032 Surface Preparation on www.mactac.com website – for specific application to dry wall reference TA2500. These can be found on the Mactac website under Technical Assistance Guides.
    • 6 Transportation Conditions: To allow for easy transportation, B-free Gruv series can be rolled up, with the image out, with a minimum diameter of 6 inches (15cm). When the image is not protected by an overlaminate, make sure the print is completely dry and protected in a plastic bag. During transportation or storage, avoid exposing them to extreme temperature and humidity changes.
