Temperature and Dampness
Infeel adhesive films should be applied when air and surface temperature are between 68°F (20°C) and
The minimum recommended temperature is 53°F (11°C). If the temperature is below 53°F: use a heater, such as a portable gas-fired infrared radiant heater to raise the temperature.
High Temperature / Low Temperature Dampness
Do not apply to damp surfaces. The surface should be completely dry prior to beginning the installation.
Utilize a heat gun for adhesion strengthening.
The working area should be well lit in order to prevent air pockets or wrinkles on the film.
Working in a dust free area reduces the potential of particles sticking into the film.
The film must be kept in a cool and dry place. The product should be installed within one year of purchase.
Note: If handling film in the winter, cold weather conditions can lead to cracks on the product.
Tip: Roll up the remaining film and store it inside a paper tube. This will prevent the film from getting damaged.
The condition of the surface is critical for a quality installation and finish.
As a rule, INFEEL adhesive films can be applied onto any clean, dry, smooth or even slightly porous surfaces. These surfaces must be free of dust, grease and wax; this includes for example, veener board, aluminum, stainless steel, glass and most painted surfaces.
Fresh primer must be completely dry before application because the vapors from the solvents can result in blistering and excessive shrinkage.
