MACtac IMAGin® GRUV™ GV529BFD is a 3.0 mil gloss white, soft calendered PVC film designed for ink jet printing. The product is coated on one side with a quick building, permanent, opaque, acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive with air egress technology and supplied with a 98# polycoated liner. GV529BFD is designed for indoor or medium term outdoor advertising and promotion applications on flat or simple curved surfaces. Use of Permacolor® ColorGard® or RAYZor® overlaminates will extend the life of the graphic.
GV529BFD is intended for wide format, eco-solvent, solvent-based and UV-cured inkjet printing To achieve the best possible print quality, please make sure that the correct ICC profiles or printer settings are used. Profiles can be downloaded from www.mactac.com/graphics . Printer and heater settings and ICC profiles can also be downloaded from some O.E.M. or software manufacturer’s websites.
Durability: The outdoor durability of the unprinted film is 5 years. Overlamination of the inkjet-printed material with Permacolor ColorGard or RAYZor overlaminating films delays color fading that may occur over time. Color fading is mainly dependent upon the inks quality (see technical data sheets given by the ink manufacturers) and pressure sensitive media being used.
Removability: Some substrates are affected by the application of the GV529BFD such as acrylic glass, polycarbonate, polystyrene, nitro-cellulose paints and plasticized PVC’s. Besides damaging the substrate, removal could be difficult.
