MetaScape Silver Etch, Dry Apply

MetaScape Silver Etch air egress, printable window film offers a polymeric calendared, semi-translucent film with a silver sheen that allows 56% light transmission. Once applied, the printed areas produce higher visual impact than a print on gloss clear film, while unprinted areas retain the appearance of frosted glass. It offers excellent opportunities for office partitions, retail and leisure applications. Compatible with eco-solvent, solvent, latex and UV-cure printers.

DRY APPLY ONLY IS MANDATORY!! Due to the METAScape air-egress technology, this product is recommended as dry-apply only. Installation will fail if wet applied. For long term installations, edge sealing is recommended.
