What surfaces work best with Dura-Lar Adhesive Backed Film?

Most smooth, flat, clean surfaces will work with our Dura-Lar Adhesive Backed Film. Our adhesive backed film will NOT stick to surfaces like blocks, fabric, and other rough surfaces. The performance of the film will also be affected by external conditions and the final application of the film product.

Does Dura-Lar have outdoor suitability?

Yes, in the short term (less than 1 year). For more than that, we do not recommend using Dura-Lar for long term outdoor exposure. Long term exposure to the elements can cause the film to yellow, become brittle or turn hazy. The longer Dura-Lar stays outside, exposed to UV, the more can lose its properties.

Dura-Lar Adhesive Back Film can be laser cut in single sheets and in stacks. The base film (Dura-Lar), adhesive system, and paper liner are all safe to cut.

Do you know if resin will bond with Dura-Lar?

Resin can be used as both a sealer and bonding agent with Dura-Lar. Always test your brand of resin with Dura-Lar and the surface you are using to be certain it works for your application.
