DPF 8200X High Tack

Industrial Grade Film for Outdoor Wall and LSE Substrates with X-Scape Technology®

DPF 8200X High Tack is a 3.5-mil (90 micron) satin white, high-tensile, PVC film with aggressive, bubble releasing, permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive. The film is made of a 100% engineering-grade facestock with a polycoated, low profile air-egress, lay-flat liner. The unique low shrink adhesive system enhances dimensional stability, improving printer handling and converting time. Designed to adhere to slightly textured outdoor wall substrates such as brick, tile, and concrete, the film also has exceptional performance on low surface energy substrates such as polypropylene, polyethylene, and powder coated paints. DPF 8200 High Tack is rated for outdoor durability up to 7 years* (unprinted). Using Arlon’s recommended installation tips for walls, the film conforms well to flat surfaces with slight contours.
