UV protection


New Member
I was wondering if you are printing on clear vinyl, static cling, and installing on the inside of window (glass) reverse printing if you a UV guard layer should be applied. also if this should be done how do you do a flood coat of a non-colored foil.

Not much reason to do UV Guard on static cling due to the rated life of that meterial being so short. I would also question the need for it with window graphics - inside or outside - providing the window in not exposed to direct sunlight. My window graphics have been up for six years without it and show no signs of sun fade.

The flood coat and shape coat options are the 123 dialog in GSPPlot.
