Kapco Water Resistant 6 mil Polypropylene Film
film that will last up to eight months outdoors without lamination. The water-resistant, matte
ink receptive layer has a bright white abrasion resistant surface that produces bright vivid
colors. The strong, permanent solvent-based adhesive sticks to a wide range of substrates,
including rigid PVC, foamboard, and aluminum. Use 6 Mil Water-Resistant Self-Adhesive
Polypropylene as a cost-effective alternative to adhesive-backed vinyl.
Compatible with dye and pigment aqueous inks and HP latex inks.

RIP & Printer Media Settings For the best and most consistent results, a profile should be created using an external color calibrator in
conjunction with your RIP and color matching software. However, if these tools are not available,
printers using dye ink should be set for the highest print quality and media selection should be
Photopaper. When using UV inks, the heavy weight coated option should be selected. Ink coverage
up to 300% is recommended.
Light Fastness The fading time of inkjet ink is a direct result of the inks that you choose to use and the environment
where the print is displayed. Please consult with your ink manufacturer for light fastness data.
Water Resistance To obtain a high degree of water resistance, use only pigmented ink. Allow the print to dry for 24 hours
before exposing to moisture. Lamination is not required. Ink saturation over 350% can affect the waterresistant
properties and show ink bleed.
Optimal Service Environment 60°-86° F, 50% Relative Humidity.
Ideal Storage Conditions 70° F (21° C), 50% R.H. (a controlled environment is recommended); store in original packaging.
Shelf Life 1 year from the ship date when stored in proper conditions.
