Oracal 631 or Oracal 651?
Which is the best self adhesive vinyl to select for a particular project? The first issue to address is whether it is for interior or exterior usage, if the intention is to apply internally then Oracal 631 would be the first instinct, does the client want a gloss or Matt finish? Being internal graphics whether it is for inspirational office quotations to motivate the workforce
or ‘rules’ for a bedroom wall
or even bathroom
or Kitchen Wall Art
the effect is still the same, Matt Vinyl is usually employed as it will not reflect the light in the room and therefore be infinitely more legible than using a Gloss Vinyl. Should a printed mural be required, possibly for a child’s bedroom wall, then still keeping with the Matt finish the ORAJET 3164 should be used, or for the removable alternative the ORAJET 3162 can be selected from The Vinyl Corporation.
Permanent or Removable Vinyl
Oracal 651 has a permanent clear solvent based adhesive, so making it ideally suited for external graphics and signage, whereas the Oracal 631 has a clear water based removable adhesive, which is more suited to temporary or internally applied graphics and Art.Oracal 631 Matt Vinyl can be applied externally, but caution should be exercised if the application is to a vehicle, whereas for a more temporary shop window installation
the Oracal 631 is certainly a good choice.
