Coverstyl Interior Films work on various surfaces like paint, varnish, and laminate.
AF06 has a strong sticky adhesive that sticks well to most surfaces.
AF06 also has air channels to help avoid air entrapment and bubbling.
Porous surfaces, like smooth plaster, need extra care because they provide good adhesion.
For surfaces such as these, the use of Primer Plus primer is essential.
For surfaces that need particular care and attention before installation include unsealed concrete.
PVC films and metals that can corrode such as copper will be less suitable for the product.
Smooth surfaces like glass or metal stick best and look nicer.
Slightly textured surfaces offer good adhesion.
Texture may be visible in some finishes.
Heavily textured wallpapers, brick, and concrete block surfaces won’t provide full adhesion coverage.
The texture of the surface will show through the film.
Paints now contain fewer VOCs and additives that make them easy to clean.
These changes may affect how well the adhesive sticks to the painted surface.
Before installing AF06, clean the area with Isopropyl 70/30 to improve the bond.
Thorough cleaning is necessary for vinyl wrap installation.
The use of Primer Plus primer will also help to overcome any adhesion issues.
To improve adhesion, you can use thin test strips on the area where you’re applying it.
This will help you determine what steps to take next, like using a primer.
Before you apply the Interior Film, make sure to repair any holes or chips.
Thoroughly clean the surface with Isopropyl 70/30 Alcohol Rubbing Gel Spray.
Use a microfiber cloth for best results.
Paint or primer needs to be fully cured.
PM04 primer needs at least 2 hours to cure.
A primer coat needs to be applied and fully cured on porous surfaces.
Certain types of MDF grades are very porous, which means they might need more than one coat of paint.
This depends on how well the surface absorbs the paint.
You can sand roughen MDF, wood, Melamine, and plastics to help them stick better.
Damaged areas with holes and chips need to be repaired before applying the Interior Film.
Clean the application surface thoroughly with an Isopropyl 70/30 Alcohol Rubbing Gel Spray using a microfiber cloth.
A primer coat needs to be applied and fully cured for porous surfaces.
Some very porous surfaces such as certain MDF grades may require more than 1 coat depending on the absorbency of the surface.
MDF, Wood, Melamine, and low surface energy plastics can be roughened up with sandpaper to aid adhesion.
The recommended application temperature for AF06 is between 10ºC and 30ºC.
Cut the film to size with a minimum of 25mm extra on all sides for trimming.
Use a squeegee with a felt to smooth out the initial point of contact.
Align the Interior film with the application surface and pull off a maximum of 300mm of liner.
Then starting in the center, squeegee the film down using overlapping strokes.
Remove another 300mm of liner.
Repeat this process until the application surface is completely covered.
Be careful to apply the film just once.
Moving it again and again can make the film separate.
Stretching of the film can cause colour and pattern variation.
Squeegee the entire area again to ensure 100% adhesion.
Using a hot air gun will help ensure 100% adhesive contact and improve the bond.
If air is trapped causing a bubble during installation, strip back the film gently, then reapply with the plastic applicator.
Very small air bubbles can be released by pricking the bubble with a pin.
Press out the entrapped air by moving your thumb toward the puncture hole.
We recommend Primer for the following -:
Calcium Silicate Board.
Polyester Coated Laminates.
Plastisol Coated Metals.
MDF and low surface energy plastics such as Polypropylene and Polyethylene.
A primer will also help prevent issues in the film’s most stressed areas.
These areas are prone to heat and stretching during the application process.
Doors’ edges and tops, curved surfaces, corners, and overlapping joints need this treatment.
LX PM04 Primer was made for PVC films, especially for connecting joints.
In addition, it works well with wood, gypsum, etc.
Multiple coatings are recommended for very porous surfaces.
