Recommendations for best results
Storage: the material must be stored in environments with a temperature of approx. 20°C and 55% relative humidity. It's advisable not to stock for more than 9 months.
Usage: temperature 20°C
Storage at 15 - 20° gives a printability period of 9 months. Higher temperatures, (especially over 25°C), cause the film to lose prematurely its ability to be printed.
