WV159 www.Mactac.com Version 2 1116 Approved by J. S. Product IMAGin WindowVIEW WV159 5050 Perforated one-way Visibility Film Product Description WV159 is an 8-mil soft white vinyl film with black reverse side and 50 perforated with a 1.5 mm hole diameter for one-way visibility. The product is coated on one side with a semi-permanent clear acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive and supplied with a 7-mil film release liner with a clear back laminate. WV159 is designed for solvent based ink jet printing for window graphics viewed from one side and see-through from the other side. Product Construction External Applications Window graphics applied onto flat glass surfaces showing advertising on one side and allowing see-through from the other. WV159 can also be used in conjunction with opaque marking films for vehicle and public transportation advertising. Application is not guaranteed when heaters on rear windows are in operation. The use of rear wipers is also not recommended. To make full use of the advertising it is recommended the inside lighting of the vehicle to be dimmer than the lighting on the outside of the vehicle especially at night. WV159 can also be used to reduce heat and glare from the sun inside vehicles and glass buildings. Internal Applications Because of its one-way visibility WV159 can be used for surveillance purposes in shops department store stock rooms etc. etc. Warning Application of vinyl film that renders emergency exit windows inoperative is prohibited under National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966 recodified at Title 49 U.S.C. The application of vinyl film over the emergency exit window seals will not permit the emergency exits to function as intended. This creates a safety hazard. In order to permit the exits to function it is necessary to trim properly around the emergency exit seals. Often the window seals do not coincide with the window frame edge. If a manufacturer distributor dealer or motor vehicle repair business renders

an item of safety equipment inoperable they are subject to civil penalties outlined in 49 U.S.C. 30165 a penalty of not more than 5000 for each violation maximum penalty under this subsection for a related series of violations is 15000000.

Processing may change the values. Durability The outdoor durability of the unprinted film is 3 years. However actual durability of the printed graphic is dependent on the inks and overlaminates used. Some adverse reactions may occur when applying WV159 to certain substrates such as acrylic glass polycarbonate polystyrene plasticized PVC and certain paints. These reactions have a negative effect on the adhesive performance. Glass Breakage MACtac accepts no liability for glass breakage due to temperature differences across the glass which can be caused by sunlight on dark areas of the graphic. Size thickness quality of cut edge treatment tinting and frame design all effect temperature stress. Shelf Life 1 year from D.O.M. when stored at 6077F 1525C and 50 relative humidity in the original package.

It is the customers responsibility to determine the suitability of any profile for use in their specific print environment. Limitations 1 The user is responsible for determining the products 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 Always test your combination of products print media inks and laminating films prior to commercial use. a Printing Conditions Print in conditioned pressroom at 73F 23C and 50 RH. The maximum allowable ink saturation is 270. b Drying Requirements Solvent Eco-solvent and Mild-solvent inkjet prints require 24 - 48 hr. drying time - open to the air. Inks do not dry when printed media is rolled up. The prints must be dry prior to lamination. c Laminating Conditions If the printed graphic is likely to be exposed to corrosive liquids smoke fumes highly polluted areas or there is a likelihood of scratching it is highly recommended to laminate only with optically clear Permacolor LF3640 RAYZor. d Transportation Conditions To allow for easy transportation IMAGin JT5000 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. e Application The dry method is recommended. The wet application method is not recommended due to the fact t

he moisture will become trapped between the perforations and overlaminate therefore affecting the see-through visibility. f Trimming and Finishing Windows Window trimming needs special care depending on the type of window you are marking a Contact with Rubber Window Seals will cause the adhesive to fail. Therefore graphics need to be trimmed off the rubber seals by 18 inch minimum. b Windows with beveled edges need to have the graphic trimmed away from the edge at a 45 angle to eliminate a hard edge that is easily peeled back.
