Grey back air release vinyl – do you rate it?
Hi guys, hope you are all well and busy.
I fitted graphics to a truck on Friday, the graphics were supplied to me by the client and printed using Orajet rapid air – no other details on the backing paper but I would assume it’s just polymeric.
This is not a brand I use and I don’t use a grey back or air release. Anyway, i understand that with these you must apply dry, the graphics were very large which i fitted myself apart from the bottom stripe (one piece) which the wife gave me some hands for.
My query is that it stuck like you know what to the vehicle, if the vinyl touched the truck before applying it would not come up. Now i was under the impression that there should be a little play with the vinyl. the air release worked well when laying.
I use standard clear back media and on large graphics, I give them a dusting of water to take the tack off the media.
It was warm 20c and the sun was barely on the vehicle, I started at 6 am to get the sunny side finished before 28c hit.
I know many of you use this type of vinyl so would be happy to hear your experiences.
