DPF 4000 is a 3.5-mil (90 micron) satin white, high-tensile, polyvinyl chloride film with medium-tack, permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive. Designed for fleet and container markings as well as indoor and outdoor graphics, DPF 4000 is made of 100% polymeric face stock 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). Printed durability is dependent on the ink system used.
