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

  • Durability
    The outdoor durability of the unprinted film is 7 years. Printed and laminated graphics have a durability of up to 5 years. Overlaminating of the inkjet-printed material with Permacolor overlaminates delays color fading that may occur over time. This color fading is mainly dependent upon the inks quality (see technical data sheets given by the ink manufacturers.

  • Removability
    GV729BFD, when laminated, is cleanly removable for up to five years after application with heat and/or chemicals. “Clean Removability” means that when removing the emblem, the pressure sensitive film will leave less than 20% of the adhesive on the substrate.

    Some substrates are affected by the application of the GV729BFD, such as acrylic glass, polycarbonate, polystyrene, nitro-cellulose paints and plasticized PVC’s. Besides damaging the substrate, subsequent removal could be difficult.

    Note: UV cured inks typically crack when stretched, and is not appropriate for conformable applications.

    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.

  • Limitations
    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.

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

  • Marine Graphics
    Marine applications have different requirements and therefore different expectations. Graphics manufactured using Mactac’s B-Free vinyl products are warranted to maintain acceptable appearance for one year from date of application. Marine graphics applied under the water line and are not edge sealed, are not warranted.

  • 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, 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) UV ink screen printing: Use Nazdar 3500 series UV cured inks. Follow the ink manufacturers processing instructions.
    • 4) Drying Step: It is critical the GV729BFD print is properly dried prior to laminating or application. While this is important in all solvent inkjet prints including with GV729BFD. 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 result in 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.
    • 5) 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 LF3600 series RAYZor, Permacolor XL1000 HORIZon series (Conformable high performance), Permacolor PermaGard Series High performance or ColorGard LUV (intermediate) overlaminating films series overlaminating films.
    • 6) Clear Coat Options: Nazdar 3529 clear coat is the only clear coat approved as an alternate to RAYZor overlaminating films for long term image protection.
    • 7) Not recommended surfaces include, 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.
    • 8) Transportation Conditions: To allow for easy transportation, 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.
