Please note that some of the electrical and mechanical properties of the 7 series films differs from the standard product. Please refer to the Autotex® (7 Series) product data sheet.
Autotex® can be screen printed with Windotex™ to obtain a clear window (see Windotex™ product data sheet). Autotex® Fine, because of its lighter texture, will produce clearer windows than Autotex® Velvet.
Autotex® has limited long term resistance to UV light and therefore is not recommended for long term use outdoors. In order to overcome this issue, MacDermid Autotype has specially developed Autotex® XE, a UV resistant version of Autotex®.
