D. Limitations of End Uses This 3M product is not designed or recommended for the following uses. Please contact us
to discuss other options.
(1) Unsuitable End Uses
for This Film
Graphics applied to:
– stainless steel (we recommend using 3M™ Controltac™ Graphic Film IJ181
– non-3M films (see Removal Warranty)
– watercraft when the graphic is below the static water line
– watercraft graphics that are not edge sealed
– painted substrates with poor paint to substrate, or paint-to-paint bond
– substrate surfaces that are not clean and smooth (little or no variation in texture)
For film with Comply v3 adhesive only: Do not use prespacing tape in cut and
weeded applications where the tape must adhere to the exposed liner.
Film without graphic protection when they are:
– printed vehicle graphics
– watercraft graphics
– exposed to abrasive conditions, harsh cleaners or chemicals
– horizontally-exposed outdoor applications
Graphic removal from:
– applications with poor paint-to-substrate adhesion
– existing graphics that must remain intact; damage may occur during removal of film
– outdoor, horizontal applications (except graphics using overlaminate 8528 or
8548G as described in this Bulletin)
Graphics subjected to gasoline vapors or spills, including those at or on gas pumps,
automobile fuel-tank ports, watercraft or top-feeding, petroleum tankers
(2) Wall Graphics Two-mil cast films are typically the best choice for indoor smooth surface wall graphics.
However, the user is responsible for determining the product’s suitability, including adhe
sion and, if required, removal characteristics. Due to the wide variability of smooth indoor
walls, neither finished graphics nor removal is warranted, even for removable or change
able films. Instruction Bulletin 5.37 provides comprehensive information for the most suc
cessful wall graphics film selection and application.
(3) Important Information
About Bus Applications

exits. See the most current version of Instruction Bulletin 5.4 for details.
