Product Description

This Permacolor ColorTrans Optically Clear 54" x 150' Perm/Self-Wetting Rem Mounting Film is a 2-mil clear polyester film coated on one side with an aggressive Permanent clear acrylic PS adhesive and on the other side with a unique Removable self-wetting clear silicone PS adhesive for dry applications. The removable side is wound out for ease of application. A polyester release liner protects the permanent side and a white OPP liner protects the removable side. The two moisture stable liners prevent curl and allow for an easy release resulting in a distortion-free adhesive surface. This optically clear, two-side coated film was designed for 2nd surface, or face-mounting, and for backmounting transparencies to glass windows, Plexiglas or other transparent substrates for both indoor and outdoor applications. This Permacolor ColorTrans Optically Clear 54" x 150' Perm/Self-Wetting Rem Mounting Film helps protect mounted images from fading caused by ultra-violet (UV) light exposure.

    End Use:

    50° to 120°F (10° - 49°C)
    -20° to 300°F (-29° to 150°C)
  • Shelf Life
    Two years when stored at 75°F (24°C) and 50% relative humidity or less. Note: Mactac recommends that rolls be stored on end or suspended from the core.
  • Durability
    CT2500 will give satisfactory performance for up to 3 years outdoor. Indoor durability can be up to 20 years under standard conditions and with high quality printing inks.
  • Removability
    This product has 6 month removability after application from glass, Plexiglas and acrylic sheeting. The removability of CT2500 may be affected by the following substrates: polystyrene, nitrocellulose painted surfaces and soft PVC. With such substrates an increase of adhesion over time may occur and adhesive residue on removal may be noticed.
  • 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.
  • General Comments
    • 1. This product is an optically clear, two sided face (2nd surface) mounting film is a delicate roll it must be handled with care. Because it is an optically clear adhesive, poor handling such as bumps, bangs, smacks, rolling across tables, etc. can cause bad artifacts like wrinkles, adhesive distortions, release liner tunneling and telescoping rolls to happen.
    • 2. Where exposure to chemicals, solvents or high pressure wash is anticipated, Mactac recommends sealing the edges with varnish, silicone or other sealant to prevent penetration by these liquids.
    • 3. Prints should not be applied onto dusty, dirty, oily or oxidized surfaces.
    • 4. The mounting board must be properly prepared prior to mounting the image. This may include wiping with alcohol, light sanding or surface sealing depending on the board. Contact your board supplier for their recommendation.
    • 5. Mactac's pressure sensitive mounting films are intended for "Cold Roll Lamination" (50°F - 120°F). The addition of heat while simultaneous mounting with Thermal Overlaminates may result in curl or have other detrimental effects on the finished product.
    • 6. Whenever possible, always test first to ensure end-use suitability.
    • 7. When using CT2500 on polycarbonate, polystyrene, polymethyl-methacrylate substrates, we recommend conducting compatibility tests in normal use conditions. These types of panels tend to outgas when exposed to elevated temperatures, creating bubbles and/or tunnels between the panels and the mounting film. Conditioning these panels overnight in a controlled room above 60°C before mounting helps minimize this effect.
