DPF 4000 is a satin white, high-tensile, polyvinyl chloride film with medium tack, permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive. Designed for indoor and outdoor graphics, DPF 4000 is made of 100% polymeric facestock with a special lay-flat liner. DPF 4000 is designed to meet the marking requirements and specifications of the transportation, vending and automotive industries. The film conforms well to flat surfaces with slight contours when processed and applied according to Arlon
recommendations. DPF 4000 is rated for outdoor durability up to 7 years (unprinted).
Ultra clean removing for up to one year
Multi-purpose applications; painted walls*, windows, short-term vehicle advertising, decals.
Matte white flexible opaque film offers high opacity for covering previous graphics and dark substrates.
Compatible with Series 3200, Series 3220 and Series 3420 overlaminates.
Print Compatibility: Solvent, Eco-Solvent, UV and Latex.
Due to changes in the paint industry, best practice is to conduct the vinyl-wall compatibility test with wall paint.
Previous graphics must be less than six months old and only up to three layers.
