DPF 6500 is a premium cast translucent vinyl film that has been weather tested in a variety of rigorous direct exposure locales, including Florida and California.

Actual weathering durability depends on surface preparation, surface maintenance and exposure conditions. Successful weather resistance is characterized by the retention of legibility. DPF 6500 will resist weathering best when applied to vertical or upper outboard angles. Arlon does not recommend its film for horizontal and close horizontal applications.
