LX Interior Films can be applied to many types of surfaces including paints, varnishes, and laminates.
ML22 features a high tack air-free adhesive, which is designed to bond well to most common surfaces.
ML22 also has air channels to help avoid air entrapment and bubbling.
The surfaces that need special attention include porous surfaces such as plaster that may appear smooth and offer good adhesion.
For surfaces such as these, the use of LX PM04 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 application surfaces such as glass or smooth metal offer the best adhesion, giving you a more aesthetic look.
Slightly textured surfaces also offer good adhesion but the texture of the application surface may be visible in some of the Interior Film finishes.
Rough surfaces such as heavily textured wallpapers, and brick and concrete blockwork will not offer 100% adhesion coverage and the surface texture will be visible in the face film.
Paints now have reduced amounts of VOCs and ‘easy-clean’ additives that can impact the ability of the adhesive to adhere properly to the paint surface.
Before installation of ML22, thorough cleaning of the area you are looking to install the vinyl wrap on must be carried out with an alcohol-based cleaner such as Isopropyl 70/30 will help improve the bond.
The use of LX PM04 primer will also help to overcome any adhesion issues.
The use of narrow test strips on the application surface will help you to decide what further action needs to be taken to improve adhesion, such as the use of a primer.
The initial adhesion is the bond needed to hold the film in place when being installed and requires a substantial portion of the adhesive to be in contact with the application surface.
The final adhesion is typically reached 24 to 72 hours after application (this will vary depending on the vinyl wrap being installed).
The best way to improve adhesion is good preparation of the surface and the use of a primer (LX PM04).
A primer such as LX PM04 is necessary on corners, overlaps, edges, and whenever the film is stretched.
Any damaged areas such as holes and chips MUST be repaired before the application of the Interior Film.
Clean the application surface thoroughly with an Isopropyl 70/30 Alcohol Rubbing Gel Spray using a micro fibre cloth.
The paint or primer must be fully cured, PM04 primer needs a minimum of 2 hours to cure.
For porous surfaces, a primer coat needs to be applied and fully cured.
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 ML22 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 centre, squeegee the film down using overlapping strokes.
Remove another 300mm of liner and repeat until the application surface is fully covered.
Take care to apply the film only once as repeated repositioning of the film can cause delamination.
Stretching of the film can cause colour and pattern variation.
Squeegee the entire area again to ensure 100% adhesion.
The use of a hot air gun will help ensure 100% adhesive contact and improve the bond.
If during installation air is trapped behind the film causing a bubble, gently strip back the film and reapply with the plastic applicator.
Tiny 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
The use of a primer is highly recommended 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 reduce future problems in the more highly stressed areas of the film where the film has been heated and stretched during application.
Areas needing this treatment include doors’ edges and tops, three-dimensional curved surfaces, internal and external corners, and overlapping joints.
LX PM04 Primer was specifically developed for use with PVC films, particularly overlapping joints.
In addition, it works well with wood, gypsum, etc.
Multiple coatings are recommended for very porous surfaces.
