Advice from ORAFOL–
ORAFOL advises to only use materials from the same batch for a single graphics application. In this situation, ORAFOL makes sure that each film roll is made of material from the same batch number, preventing any splices. When employing different batch numbers, the technician should conduct tests to identify any potential variations in how the films are used and in the level of the graphical application.
The permanent polyacrylate adhesive used in the ORAJET digital printing self-adhesive vinyl is 100 microns thick and the adhesive comes with a white or a grey backing.
N.B Both the Clear Adhesive and the Grey Adhesive on the White Backing are Permanent Adhesives.
So, If you are looking for eye-catching and vibrant short- and medium-term outdoor advertising, this Solvent-based, UV-based, or latex inkjet printing just might be the one for you.

The surfaces that will receive the material must be well-cleaned and free of any debris, oil, or other impurities that can hinder the substance’s adhesion.
Surfaces that have recently been painted or lacquered should be left at least three weeks to dry completely.
Prior to applying the material, the user should test the suitability of the chosen lacquers and paints.
Storage and Processing Conditions
The self-adhesive goods that ORAFOL provides in rolls should never be laid flat (without end caps); instead, they should always be suspended (with end caps) or standing on end on the roll blocks. They should be stored in a cool, dry area that is shielded from sunlight for processing and storage. It should be ensured that the temperature is between +I8°C and +22°C and that the relative air humidity is between 40% and 50%. In no way should storage be done next to a radiator or in direct sunlight.
Instructions for Printing
In general, extreme caution should be used when handling the digital printing materials.
- To avoid soiling or causing damage to the surface, cotton gloves should be worn.
- Examine the surface’s quality before printing or applying anything.
- Additionally, profile the print file. Due to their varying characteristics, such as the thickness of the adhesive layer, the ORACAL®/ORAJET® digital printing medium require distinct parameter settings of the printer and the selection software (RIP).
- Make sure you account for the appropriate volume of ink and the precise specifications of each hue.
- Additionally, make sure to match the digital printing materials and inks according to their specifications for their individual uses (indoor/outdoor) and durability.
After printing, freshly printed films should be spread out and given time to dry so that any remaining solvent can evaporate. The vinyl may shrink if freshly printed vinyl is placed in the printed areas. Depending on the ink used, laminating too soon could reduce the film’s functionality (adhesive power, lifespan) by preventing residual solvents from evaporating. Films that have been printed but haven’t been properly dried shrink as they dry. The film may shrink and come off at the edges, from corrugations and rivets, if the vinyls’ drying process occurs after application on the substrate. We advise spreading the film out and letting it dry for at least 72 hours (laying or hanging), after following these processing and handling guidelines.
In order to extend the lifespan of inkjet printouts while maintaining their ideal quality (gloss, colour, and resistance to physical damage), lamination is advised. The desired appearance of the graphic (gloss, matte, or semi-gloss) is improved with ORAGUARD® laminate films. They also offer fantastic defence against fading brought on by UV exposure.
Allow solvent printed images to outgas for at least 24 hours at 70°F (48–72 hours) before trimming or laminating to prevent delamination, edge curling, and adhesive failure.
A popular low-cost option for indoor or transient outdoor graphic applications is a product with a water-based adhesive, such as ORAJET® 3640. Applications that are common include
wall graphics, signage, or advertising decals.
Use of wet application techniques or low temperature applications must be avoided to prevent adhesive bonding problems with the substrate.
Solvent-based adhesive-based products, such ORAJET® 3551, are made for highly demanding, long-lasting applications.
Solvents are used to mix the components of this glue, resulting in a product that is structurally stronger and more resistant to chemicals, cleaning agents, and a wider range of temperatures.
The ability to wet-apply graphics without worrying about adhesive bonding problems is another crucial feature.
