Coverstyl Interior Films work on various surfaces like paint, varnish, and laminate.
AL17 has a strong sticky adhesive that sticks well to most surfaces.
AL17 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 AL17, 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 the 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.
Before you apply the Interior Film, make sure to repair any damaged areas with holes and chips.
To clean the surface, use an alcohol spray and a cloth.
Make sure to wipe it thoroughly.
A primer coat needs to be applied and fully cured for porous surfaces.
Certain types of wood, like MDF, can be very absorbent.
In these cases, multiple coats may be needed to cover the surface effectively.
You can use sandpaper to roughen up MDF, wood, melamine, and low-surface energy plastics.
This helps with adhesion.
The recommended application temperature for AL17 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 inside film with the area you are applying it to.
Then remove up to 300mm of the backing.
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, strip back the film gently.
Then reapply with the 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.
