application pressures. With the addition of a urethane adhesive as a tie-coat or primer, FILM-1003
can also be used on delicate or heat-sensitive substrates.The film adhesive typically is supplied
in 60-inch widths and is available in varying thicknesses on release film or paper. It also can be
supplied laminated to a customers substrate.
