 Storage and Handling Instructions 

Storage

  • • Films must be always kept dry when not being fitted to the glass. 

  • • Do not store on end. 

  • • Recommended storage temperatures are from 40° F (4° C) to 100° F (38° C). Storage for prolonged periods outside this range will damage the film or its coatings. 

  • • Do not store at temperatures over 140° F or below 32° F. 

  • • Store the material in a climate-controlled room for a minimum of 24 hours before application. 

  • • Keep unrolled film within the protective polyester sleeve and within the box. 

  • • Keep the unrolled film on the core suspended in the box by the square end caps that prevent the material from sliding or “telescoping” off the core. 

  • • Retain roll box for storage purposes. 

  • • Avoid impacting containers. If box is damaged, return to supplier.

Handling: 

  • Heavy Gauge polyester film will cause cuts. 

  • Cut resistant and static resistant gloves are recommended. 

  • As with most plastics, movement over metal rollers will produce static charges. Use caution when handling to prevent shocks. :
