On what surfaces can I use d-c-fix® sticky back plastic?
The film can be applied on almost any clean (dust and grease free) flat surfaces like walls, doors, appliances, furniture, bench tops, cupboards, windows and anything else you can think of. If applied on untreated wood like chipboard or plywood, we suggest you use a sealer or primer on the surface first.
How do I cut the film?
Place the film in front of you with the printed grid system up. Use the grids for straight lines and mark with a pen your required shape. Allow for about 4mm extra on each side as it may be tricky to place the film exactly where you want it to be. The extra millimeters can easily be cut off with your sharp knife once the film is applied to your chosen surface.

Heat the film with a hairdryer on the coolest setting. Gently smooth the film and press it onto the surface as you warm it. Make sure you don't pull the film too hard whilst it's warm as it may overstretch.
Can I patch the d-c-fix® if the width of one roll isn't wide enough?
It is always best to use a width of a film that is wider than your intended surface. If your surface is wider than the width of the roll you can use another length next to the first. In every possible way try to place the edge where it's least visible and exposed. Make a 10mm overlap (like you do with wallpaper) to avoid that any of the backing surface is exposed. If the edges are likely to be exposed to wet conditions (e.g. in a bathroom or kitchen bench top) or accidentally to be touch very often, it is recommended to use a sealer.

We cut most of our films by meter from long rolls in our warehouse. (e.g. if you require 47cm you will have to order 1m and if you require 390cm you will have to order 4m). A few patterns are available as pre packed rolls and come in either 1.5m or 2m lengths.

Although the product's purpose is for an indoor environment it can be used outdoor as well. Due to weather exposure from sun, wind and rain the expected life time is approximately one to three years. The material may fade and become brittle by time and it could potential lift from the surface if the edges are exposed to too much wetness. We recommend you to seal the edges if this is the case.
