Preferably the film should be applied by mechanical means. Best results are obtained at an application temperature between 60°F and 100°F.
Adhesive properties are susceptible to change due to the following parameters: chemical and physical state of the surface to be protected; presence of impurities within or on the substrate; elongation of the film during application and temperature of surroundings and of substrate.
The film can be stored for six months, in its original packaging and in dry conditions. The rolls should be protected from extremes of temperature and direct sunlight. Out of its container, the film should be protected against dust and other impurities.
The thickness of the protective film has to be taken into account for the tolerances of any processing equipment cominginto contact with the film.

Tests should be conducted under actual applications conditions.
