Actual weathering durability depends on surface preparation, surface maintenance and exposure conditions. Successful weather resistance is characterized by the retention of legibility. DPF 6000RP Clear will resist weathering best when applied to vertical or upper outboard angles. Horizontal angles, such as hood and auto roof surfaces, will deteriorate more quickly than vertical. This is due to increased exposure to sun and moisture, as well as high deposition of dirt and atmospheric contaminants. Arlon does not recommend its film for horizontal or close horizontal applications. Use heat and/or chemical when removing image from vehicle (see Installer Handbook for details).
