At temperature drops, the layer may warp, bubbles or defective spots appear on the image. In addition, this film is easily scratched. Another significant disadvantage is the harmfulness of the ink used for such printing, their component solvent evaporates into the environment, adversely affecting the body.

For UV printing, use a special plotter with large sizes. The UV imprint is matte.When applied to smooth materials - laminated, glass, mirror image is subject to mechanical damage, so use a transparent primer for greater adhesion.
