Introduction: Sign Masking
Sign Peel 4014 is a strippable coating for temporary masking of acrylics, plastics polystyrene and painted surfaces during paint spraying and vacuum metallising. For temporary protection.
Some means of masking must be used to determine the areas to be covered with leaf. Masking tape could be used, but can be troublesome on the compound curves of a turning. General Chemical’s liquid masking material-SignPeel Maskant is available that works well.
Applies as a liquid and dries to form a contour hugging plasic film. Easy to cut and weed and simply strips away after use leaving no residue. Economic and ideal for moulded sign pans.
Water-based, transparent strippable coating used in the decoration of plastic signage.
SignPeel Mask is a unique liquid maskant used in sign face decoration. It is a water-based, water soluble, non-toxic, Earth-friendly spray masking that can be either sprayed, rolled or brushed on, and when allowed to dry, can be cut and peeled for painting. The unique advantages SignPeel offers, coupled with its ease of spraying, peelablility and lasting elasticity, make SignPeel the best product available
Liquid mask may be painted on the turning with a brush, but spraying it with a Critter spray gun at 90 psi works much better. This provides a relatively smooth surface on which layout lines can be accurately drawn. Remember that this product is water-based, and applying a too heavy first coat may cause moisture to migrate into the wood, raising the grain and damaging the pre-finish. A light coat of mask, followed by two or three heavier coats will work well. If the mask is too thin, it will be difficult to remove. If it is too thick, material has been wasted, and it will be more difficult to obtain sharp edges on the leaf. As each coat dries, it will change from white to a transparent blue- color.
A tough weather-resistant film, withstands foot traffic, scratching and solvents overspray. It removes cleanly without leaving residue.
- Results in a reduction of labor costs.
- Once cured, it provides an extremely tough, uniform film.
- Curing time can be cut considerably with the use of heat lamps (100°F), circulation of air and other factors.
- Easily removed. Peels off in sheets which eliminates messy hand scrapping.
- Safe, non-flammable.
- Suitable for all substrates including polycarbonates, plastic and painted surfaces.
Temporary Protective Peelable Spray Masking For Sign Making, SignPeel Mask, Peel Peelable Masking Compounds, Application Questions About Application & Instructions For Automotive Peelable Coatings
A strippable coating for temporary masking of acrylics, plastics polystyrene and painted surfaces during paint spraying and vacuum metallising. For temporary protection.
TOXICITY: The compound is non-toxic and non-flammable.
ELONGATION: 200% minimum
APPLICATION: By brush, roller or by standard spray guns, e.g. DeVilbiss JGA or MBC equipped with (a) Pressure feed with FF or FX nozzle and jet with 765 Air Cap: (b) Suction feed with FF or FX (1.8 tip size) nozzle and jet with 306D Air Cap.
Atomisation pressure 4.05-4.75ATM (60-70psi). A minimum Dry film thickness of 100 microns is recommended. (250 microns wet
Apply to achieve a minimum wet film thickness of 250 microns = 100 microns DFT (dry film thickness). IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ACHIEVE AN EVEN DFT OF MIN 100 MICRONS. As anything less may result in the film becoming difficult to remove.
Try to avoid ‘feather edges’ or areas where it is applied thinly. In order to achieve a defined edge it may help to apply masking tape, roller up to and over the tape and remove tape while BoatPeel Peelable coating is still wet.
