Actual weathering durability depends on surface preparation, surface maintenance and exposure
conditions. Successful weather resistance is characterized by the
retention of legibility.
Series 3420 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 continued high deposition of
dirt and atmospheric contaminants. Arlon does not recommend its film for horizontal or close
horizontal applications.
