All of our UCFC medias are designed
for indoor use. Temporary outdoor use is possible but we strongly
encourage the use of an over-laminate if outdoor use is required.
Using any of our inkjet media
in the interior of an automobile should be considered an outdoor
use. this is due to moisture and extreme temperature changes.
If this media is to be used indoors
where steam or moisture is present then the artwork once printed
must be protected with clear spray. For Car windows we strongly
recommend the UCFC media
Our ultra cling medias are excellent
on surfaces that are problematic for true static cling, such as
windows which have been cleaned with an anti-fogging agent or a
streak free cleaner.
1) Copy/Print on to the coated side
of the media using compatible printer.
2) Carefully inspect each sheet before
printing to ensure that the sheet is not bent, warped, or has folded
corners this will prevent most paper jams. Always load one sheet
at a time to ensure proper loading. With this media selecting the
correct media setting is critical. Usually the setting which works
best is either "Transparency" or "Glossy Film" Depending on the
printer and ink used the label may be ready for use in as few as
a few minutes. In some cases you must allow several hours or even
overnight drying time. Some universal ink refill inks may not work
with this media.
1) Before mounting make sure you
clean and remove any residual grease, soot, or dust. the micro sphere
adhesive featured on this media adheres to most substrates even
cardboard, wallpaper, and smooth wood.
2) Gently peel the film away from
the liner taking care to avoid stretching the media.
3) Line up the label with your substrate.
When positioned correctly allow the label to make contact with the
surface on one edge and then using your fingers work down the rest
of the surface. Take care not to use excessive force when applying
the label as it may cause the ink to smudge.
Tip: When making ultra cling labels
for automobile windows or any label you wish to apply inside but
be visible from the outside follow the steps above with these exceptions:
A) You must use the CLEAR ultra cling. B) Print your image in
MIRROR or REVERSE. C) Spray the sheet with white acrylic paint after
the ink is dry. D) Let the paint dry.
For car windows we strongly recommend
the use of UCFC over static cling. Static cling can be problematic
with substrates that have at one time or another been cleaned or
treated with streak free or anti-fogging agents. Our new ultra cling
works the same way but with a very low tack adhesive using micro
sphere technology to cling to the glass.
If the label is to be used outdoors
we strongly encourage the use of an over-laminate that offers UV
protection. For maximum protection we suggest the use of both our
WOL over-laminate together with a spray laminate.
To improve the UV resistance of inkjet
media HPS offers an aerosol UV laminate spray. For ordering information
