Temperature and relative humidity Roll storage Further information
Based upon cutting evaluations the minimum height for text is 10 mm using upper and lowercase Helvetica Medium. The stroke width should not be lower than 1 mm.
The variable characteristics of electronically controlled cutting equipment require users to verify their specific requirements. Dull blades impart a serrated look to the edge of the cut film. The ideal weight slightly scores the liner. Too little weight does not cut completely through the film and the adhesive. Excessive weight cuts the liner and causes the blade to drag, accelerating wear and creating a serrated cut edge on the film. The excess film should be weed (removed) as soon after cutting as practical. This is to minimize the effect of possible adhesive flow. Temperature and relative humidity are minor considerations, but avoid extreme or rapid fluctuating conditions.
Store the film in the same environment as the cutting equipment. For more details refer to our instruction bulletin 4.1 ‘Sheeting, Scoring, Film Cutting’, please.
