DPF 4600GLX/MLX is constructed of a 3.2-mil (80 micron) white gloss or matte high performance calendered film with a tinted, clean removing, repositionable adhesive system. The repositionable light gray adhesive allows for easy installation while ensuring enough opacity for covering up existing graphics or dark substrates. The Low Profile X-Scape Technology provides installers the benefit of a bubble-free installation combined with a smooth printed surface that doesn’t show the pattern through the print. DPF 4600GLX/MLX works great for your multipurpose signage needs. DPF 4600GLX/MLX is rated for outdoor durability up to 7 years (unprinted). Printed durability is dependent on the ink system used.
^ When used with Series 3220 Gloss or Series 3420 Gloss.
* Only available in Europe and the Middle East.

DPF 4600GLX/MLX 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. Actual horizontal weathering will be dependent on maintenance, location and elemental exposure. Use heat and/or chemical when removing image from vehicle (see Installer Handbook for details).

* When wrapping curves and channels with DPF 46000GLX/MLX, it is recommended the product be draped and not stretched into areas with channels.
** Can be applied on low profile rivets. Please note that rivets vary in shape and size so tenting may appear.
Simple Curves: Defined as a slight stretch to the film in one direction (example: the side vehicle).
Complex Curves: Defined as extensive stretching (with or without heat) of material in multiple directions (example: bumpers).
Deep Channel: Channels in excess of a quarter inch in depth that require a “bridge and stretch” method for application.
DPF 4600GLX/MLX is recommended for short-term interior floor applications when used with either Series 3220 Gloss or Series 3420 Gloss, which are approved under UL 410 regulation for slip-resistance for Floor Graphic Materials. To determine the best product for application Arlon always recommends testing prior to using the above products on the actual surface as product performance can vary greatly depending on the surface type, level of foot traffic, elemental exposure, carpet type, and floor condition. Due to these variables, Arlon only warrants the material(s) for standard manufacturers defect and is unable to offer a warranty for the performance or clean removability of these products for floor graphic applications.
Please refer to Arlon’s Installation Guide for detailed techniques and best practices.
