Product Description

These Permacolor Gemini XT Opaque White Rubber Back Mounting Film are an economical, general purpose, high-bond rubber-based adhesive mounting film with an opaque white PET carrier. A moisture stable, polycoated kraft liner protects the adhesive. The single release liner permits easy lamination and eliminates the need to remove a second liner in applications where that may be difficult or impossible. These Permacolor Gemini XT Opaque White Rubber Back Mounting Film are designed for quick adhesion to a variety of mounting surfaces and can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications.

  • Durability
    Five years or more indoors and up to 1 year outdoors. Please note that exposure to severe temperatures, ultra-violet light and also in tropical, sub-tropical or desert regions will cause more rapid deterioration. This also applies to polluted areas, high altitude and south facing exposure.

  • Shelf Life
    Two years when stored at 68°F (20°C) and 50% relative humidity or less. Note: Mactac recommends that rolls be stored on end or suspended from the core.

  • 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.

  • Recommendations
    • 1. 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.
    • 2. Prints should not be applied onto dusty, dirty, oily or oxidized surfaces.
    • 3. 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.
    • 4. 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.
    • 5. PP5000 is not designed with 2nd surface mounting (face mounted applications) in mind.
    • 6. Whenever possible, always test first to ensure end-use capability.

    • Product reinforced with 2-mil polyester during adhesion testing.
    • Values given are typical for unprocessed product and are not for use as specifications. Processing may change the values
