Emulsion sounds like something you read in a salad dressing recipe and, if
you look closely enough, you can almost see how this 975EM Premium Cast Wrapping
film resembles the mixture of oil and vinegar in a glass bottle if it were black
or white. Still, calling this ORACAL® vinyl wrap Emulsion seems a bit obtuse
although it's par for the course for the folks who brought us Crocodile Fir Tree
Cast wraps (that's green alligator skin) and Emulsion 975DN series zebra wraps!
Regardless, this Premium Cast Structure Emulsion film looks great and gives
almost the appearance of a snake skin vinyl (see Rwraps™ Snake Skin to see what
975EM Premium Structure Cast Wraps are made for use without
overlaminates (we're not even sure how you can apply one due to its 3D zebra
stripes) so you can get to wrapping as soon as you get your roll. At 5 to 6
mil thick, 975EM Premium Cast wraps are thicker than either Avery™ Supreme
Wrapping Film or
3M™ 1080, so it goes on easier and more smoothly without you having to
worry as much about over-stretching.
Unlike calendered and polyester which are made to be cut on a plotter and
applied as graphics and decals, Emulsion 975EM films are designed specifically
for wrapping. What that means they are thicker than craft and sign vinyl to
allow for more stretchability and feature air-release channels in their
adhesives to prevent bubble formation. All of these characteristics make them
uniquely suited to wrapping and do not lend themselves to application via
transfer tape because the air-release adhesives prevent adhesion of smaller
lettering and intricate decals.
It all depends on how experienced you are at installing
vinyl wraps but this 975EM Emulsion Vinyl Wrapping film surely makes it
easier. Its 5 to 6 mil thickness and air-egress adhesives give you a
crazy so even first-time
installers will be able to get professional looking results provided they follow the
basic guidelines for wrap installation. Just clean the surface apply heat and
squeegee on. The rest is history.
Due to its extra thickness and
the properties of its Premium Cast Emulsion vinyl, it conforms over
curved surfaces, rivets and corrugations with ease. And, since it is
manufactured with a clear-coat it does not require overlaminate.
