  • Durability
    The outdoor durability of the unprinted film is 5 years. Overlamination of the inkjet-printed material with PERMACOLOR ColorGard LUV or RAYZor 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.

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 Printing with UV inks both inkjet and Screen, will significantly reduce the stretch ability of this film and may result in cracking or lifting out of the deeper wall recesses and is not a warranty failure.
    • 3 Drying Step: It is critical the GV529BFD 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.
    • 4 Laminating Conditions: Ensure print is perfectly dry. Material must have 24 - 48 hr. drying time open to the air, not rolled up in a tube, prior to lamination or transportation. 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 (intermediate) or PromoGard (economy) overlaminating films.
    • 5 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, over existing graphics that must remain upon removal, oily surfaces, unpainted wood, etc.
    • 5 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.
