Application on Substrates with Recesses,Surface Preparation. All substrates must be considered contaminated Clean the substrate immediately before applying the film Dust and other contaminants. can collect quickly on the substrate and prevent the film from adhering properly. 1 Use a solution of 1 ounce of liquid dishwashing detergent such as Joy or Dawn per gallon of lukewarm water to thoroughly clean the. vehicle Rinse with water, Avoid soaps or preparations that contain waxes oils or lotions some window cleaners contain waxes Be aware that the chemicals used. in some automated vehicle washing equipment may prevent good film adhesion. Pay particular attention to cleaning the front and rear of the vehicle and areas where the film will be wrapped around like doors and. body seams, 2 Dry the surface thoroughly with clean lint free paper towels A heat gun may be used to apply moderate heat and accelerate the drying. Moisture prevents the adhesive from adhering correctly can cause bubbles and can freeze in cold environments Any moisture trapped. beneath the graphic will cause the graphic to fail prematurely. Inadequate drying after cleaning as well as from application solutions. Condensation can occur at low installation temperatures below 15 C or 60 F so having a dry surface is critically important. 3 Wipe the surface again with a solvent based cleaner Refer to the list of cleaners below Be sure that the cleaner does not damage the. vehicle s paint, Note Car wax can greatly reduce graphic adhesion Solvent based cleaners must be used to thoroughly remove any wax residue.
Saturate a clean paper towel with the cleaner, With the saturated towel wipe the surface where the graphic will be installed 12 30 cm beyond this area. Before the cleaner evaporates from the substrate wipe the surface with a dry lint free paper towel As the paper towel becomes dirty. discard it A dirty towel will simply move the dirt around rather than remove it. 4 In order to further improve the adhesive performance 3M recommends to repeat Step 3 using isopropyl alcohol IPA as the cleaner. If using industrial grade IPA mix a solution of 2 parts IPA to 1 part water. If using 70 rubbing alcohol do not dilute it, Note IPA evaporates very quickly Always wipe the surface before it evaporates The evaporation rate increases in warm and or windy. environments,Solvent based Cleaning Products, This list of solvent based cleaners is provided for your convenience other acceptable. cleaners may be available 3M does not endorse any particular chemical manufacturer. or supplier,Sherwin Williams R7K156 Sher Will Clean.

This instruction bulletin shows how to apply graphics into the following two types of recesses. Single Recess using application method B Heat U Shape Recess using application method C Bridge. stretch minimum of 20 cm 8 away from recess area heat and stretch. Premasking and Prespacing Tapes, The use of Application Tape is not required on laminated graphics However depending on environmental conditions high temperature it. may be an advantage for a trouble free application The use of Application Tape is recommended for clear coated samples. For large format graphics 3M Premasking Tape SCPM 19 and 3M Premasking Tape SCPM 44X can be used 3M Prespacing Tape. SCPS 100 or 3M Prespacing Tape SCPS 55 is suitable for pre spaced graphics or logos. Adhesion Promoters, The usage of adhesion promoters within the recess area will increase the adhesion of the graphic It is considered an extra level of insurance. to avoid film lifting, Repositionability and removability will be lost in areas where adhesion promoters are used.
3M offers two options to promote good adhesion to the vehicle body 3M Primer 94 and 3M Adhesion Promoter 111. 3M Primer 94, If you choose to use 3M Primer 94 or other adhesion promoters apply it to. The deepest part of any channel,Both sides of any silicone bead. Apply film within 5 minutes to 60 minutes after Primer 94 application. Break the glass inside the primer 94 ampules to activate Apply primer 94 to the deepest part of the channel. 4 Instruction Bulletin 5 46 Revision A January 2018. Application on Substrates with Recesses,3M Adhesion Promoter 111. Using 3M Adhesion Promoter 111 is another option for promoting adhesion to vehicle substrate. Important Note, 3M Adhesion Promoter 111 should only be applied to recessed areas edges and areas of high stress due to its ability to promote. adhesion Promoter 111 may leave adhesive behind during removal. Important Note, Be sure to clean beyond areas where the film will be wrapped such as the backside of the doors all painted surfaces and.
behind rubber moldings, Wet 3M Adhesion Promoter 111 on a lint free cloth and wipe the cloth in the recessed areas and edges. Health and Safety, When handling any chemical products read the manufacturers container labels and the Safety Data Sheets SDS for important health. safety and environmental information To obtain SDS sheets for 3M products go to 3M com SDS or by mail or in case of an emergency. with any equipment call your local Technical Service and always follow the manufacturers instructions for safe operation. State Volatile Organic Compound VOC regulations may prohibit the use of certain chemicals with VOC s in graphic arts coatings and. printing operations Check with you local environmental authorities to determine whether use of this solution may be restricted or prohibited. Pre application Instruction, This Instruction Bulletin provides detailed procedures and tips for a successful durable graphic application Failure to follow these. procedures may result in graphics with wrinkles and or lifting from contoured areas. Maintain the vehicle and ambient temperatures between 16 C 60 F and 32 C 90 F. Ensure the application environment is clean and well lit. Sweep the work area clean to remove any lose dirt or particles. Use a clean table top for handling the graphics Do not place the graphics on the floor. If washed in an automatic car wash do not select spot free rinse option. Ensure the vehicle surface is completely dry, Instruction Bulletin 5 46 Revision A January 2018 5. Application on Substrates with Recesses,Application Tools.
Beside manual application specially developed hand rollers can be used for the application of the film into recessed areas The hand rollers. 3M Roller S and L allow the film to be applied with uniform continuous pressure and low friction. 3M Roller S and L, When applying manually wear textile gloves to lower the friction between finger and film. Application to Single Recess, Position the film and apply it from the top and fix the edges of the contours. In case of applying the graphic within the recess area do not apply closer than 20 cm 8 to the recess To minimize the risk of lifting. it is essential to have sufficient amount of material left. Use firm even application pressure The use of 3M PA 1 Gold Squeegee with thin and soft sleeve e g microfibre is recommended. Wetting of sleeves helps to avoid scratches on film surface during application. 6 Instruction Bulletin 5 46 Revision A January 2018. Application on Substrates with Recesses, Heat the film around the recess area with a professional heat gun to a temperature of 30 C 85 F to 50 C 120 F using IJ180mC and. 50 C 120 F to 60 C 40 F using LX480mC SV480mC, Applying heat to areas of film 20 cm 8 beyond the recess area will reduce the tension of the film when being applied in the recess area. Apply the film into the recess either with your thumb or with the hand roller 3M Roller L or S. After the film is completely applied into the recess apply the film on the remaining area within the recess. Instruction Bulletin 5 46 Revision A January 2018 7. Application on Substrates with Recesses, Due to the 3M Comply technology trapped air can easily be removed without causing air bubbles.
Application to U Shape Recess, When planning the film application in the recess area make sure you leave a path for the air to escape. Position the panel onto the substrate and fix the panel with magnets or masking tape on the top. Roll the panel up to the top Remove the liner carefully from the film. Start the application on the flat part of the substrate and bridge the film over the recess deep channel. Films require high squeegee pressure to avoid air entrapment between film and substrate Therefore the use of 3M PA 1 Gold Squeegee. with thin and soft sleeve e g microfibre is recommended Wetting of sleeves helps to avoid scratches on film surface during application. Apply the film into the recess either with your thumb or with the hand roller 3M Roller L or S. 8 Instruction Bulletin 5 46 Revision A January 2018. Application on Substrates with Recesses, When applying manually wear textile gloves to lower the friction between finger and film Heat the film around the recess area with a. professional heat gun to a temperature of a minimum of 50 C 120 F. Start film application in the recess in the deepest point first 1 Then continue at the opposite point of the recess 2 Last apply the film in. the middle part of the recess 3,1 Deepest point first. 2 Opposite side, Instruction Bulletin 5 46 Revision A January 2018 9. Application on Substrates with Recesses, Post Heating of Film Applied to Single Recesses and U Shape Recesses.
For application on recesses post heating is required Ensure that no air bubbles are left trapped between the substrate and the film by. re heating the film in the recessed areas and deep channels with a hot air gun By doing this overlooked air bubbles can be detected. Air bubbles between the film and the substrate must be removed with the air release tool. After checking air bubbles the film should be heated to a temperature of 95 C 200 F to 110 C 230 F Re roll immediately the film with. the small hand roller in the recessed areas and deep channels This softens the adhesive closes remaining air channels and ensures good. final adhesion, 10 Instruction Bulletin 5 46 Revision A January 2018. Application on Substrates with Recesses, The hand rollers 3M Roller S and L allow the film to be applied with uniform continuous pressure and low friction. Post Heating of Overlaps, Important In order to avoid lifting at the overlaps of the panels post heating of the overlaps with the hot air gun of at. least 100 C 210 F to 120 C 250 F is necessary to avoid lifting failures. CAUTION Re heating of the film and repressing the film into the recesses and deep channels is a quality control to assure a proper. application without air bubbles,Omitting this can lead to lifting failures. Finishing the Installation, To finish the installation re heat all edges to check film stays free of tension at 40 C 100 F to 60 C 140 F Maintain the vehicle at an.
ambient temperature above 16 C 60 F for at least 12 hours but longer if possible before exposing it to either a cold or wet climate This. allows the film s adhesive bond to build and strengthen The vehicle may be washed by hand or in a touchless automated car wash after more. than 24 hours using normal vehicle washing solutions Dry the graphics to prevent hard water stains Do not use high pressure spray directed. at the edges of the film which can degrade and lift the edges of the film. For fast heating of larger film areas the use of Infrared heater 2000 W e g TERM 2000 CVH from company Burda Worldwide. Technologies GmbH is another option, Instruction Bulletin 5 46 Revision A January 2018 11. Application on Substrates with Recesses,Important notice.
