Avery UC DOL 1000 Series Clear Cast Vinyl is a premium quality, flexible vinyl film designed for use as a protective overlaminate film for screen and digitally printed decals.

Uses

UC DOL 1000 Series offers an exceptional value for applications requiring varying levels of gloss for abrasion resistance, conformability, and color durability. This product can also be used as an overlaminate for floor graphics. The films now feature an extremely smooth and stable mottle reduction liner which improves the overall paint-like finish of printed graphics.

Dimensional stability:

Is measured on a 6” x 6” (150 x 150 mm) aluminum panel to which a specimen has been applied; 72 hours after application the panel is scored in a cross pattern, exposed for 48 hours to 150°F (65°C), after which the shrinkage is measured.

Adhesion:

(FTM-1, FINAT) is measured by peeling a specimen at a 180° angle from a stainless steel panel, 24 hours after the specimen has been applied under standardized conditions. Initial adhesion is measured 15 minutes after application of the specimen.

Flammability:

A specimen applied to aluminum is subjected to the flame of a gas burner for 15 seconds. The film should stop burning within 15 seconds after removal from the flame.

Also tested to ASTM E-84 method for surface burning characteristics of building materials. Documentation from third party testing agency available upon request.

Temperature range:

A specimen applied to stainless steel is exposed at high and low temperatures and brought back to room temperature. 1 hour after exposure the specimen is examined for any deterioration. Note: Prolonged exposure to high and low temperatures in the presence of chemicals such as solvents, acids, dyes, etc. may eventually cause deterioration.

Chemical Resistance:

All chemical tests are conducted with test panels to which a specimen has been applied. 72 hours after application the panels are immersed in the test fluid for the given test period. 1 hour after removing the panel from the fluid, the specimen is examined for any deterioration.
