DPF 5450X

Printable Polymeric Etched Glass Film with X-Scape Technology®

DPF 5450X is a 3.2-mil (80 microns) polymeric printable etched glass vinyl with Low-Profile X-Scape Technology®. Etched glass vinyl is a more cost-effective way to simulate sandblasting or etching that allows flexibility with design and provides an additional layer of privacy. DPF 5450X is ideal for applications on glass, windows, mirrors, partitions, and displays. The air channels of the Low-Profile X-Scape Technology allow for ease of installation minimizing bubbles and wrinkles. Arlon recommends installing DPF 5450X using a Dry Application Technique. DPF 5450X is rated for an indoor durability up to 5 years (unprinted). Perimeter and exterior graphics are rated for up to a 3 year durability (unprinted). Printed durability is dependent on the ink system used.
