PHOTO TEX GROUP TERMS & CONDITIONS
- Do not use the Opaque versions on glass, metal and vinyl – please use the original versions. The Opaque coating is on the adhesive side and can cause removal issued outdoors in very high or low temperatures.
- Do not cut the overlap when using UV inks and “Opaque” Photo Tex as you may see a white line from the cutting. Opaque is a block-out intended to not have to mid-cut the overlap area to butt.
- Do not use painters masking tape with latex inks unless you remove at a slow pace, otherwise you can rip the ink off.
- Do not use cleaners with Alcohol to clean walls when using Opaque as there is a chance it can react to the opaque coating (bubble) – just use warm damp & dab of dawn soap on a towel to clear dust.
- Use a plastic or cloth squeegee when installing the Opaque versions as hands may leave bubbles, especially on texture surfaces.
- Always allow 30 days on a freshly painted wall before installing (paint out-gasses).
- Avoid bubbles/tunnels by making sure that newly painted surface had 30-days to dry, do not clean wall with any solutions, make sure the Latex printers heat settings are not above 205 degrees (some profiles are set at 220 and we like between 190-205 Fahrenheit. )
- INSTALLATION DISCLAIMER & PRECAUTION: Due to all the variables of the wall surface and recently the (NEW) paints, along with choosing the correct PHOTO TEX versions. Our products should not be installed within a distance in which infant/children sleep and/or occupy without continuous adult supervision.
FAQs & TIPS
LIQUID LAMINATE PHOTO TEX?
Always liquid laminate Photo Tex with the liner/backer still on the material. If already installed then do not liquid laminate to the edges while on the wall as the liquid can seep around the edges and on the adhesive.
Some thin 1.5-2.0 mil Cold Laminate may work fine, but we recommend liquid laminating or clear coating.
