Print environments the individual nature of printing systems inks and software can significantly affect output. It is the customers 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 73F 23C and 50 RH. The maximum allowable ink saturation is 270. 2. Drying Step It is critical the GV429R 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 andor 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. 3. 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 ColorGard LUV series overlaminating films. 4. 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 oily surfaces unpainted wood etc. 5. Application See TA2032 Surface Preparation on www.mactac.com website for specific application to dry wall reference TA2500. These can be found on the Mactac website under Technical Assistance Guides. 6. 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. Values given are typical and are not necessarily for use in specification.
