    People of earth.....I'm concidering giving it a try on an upcomming FULL wrap of a Kia Forte.

    I find the Envisions lam to be a bit thick and not a flexible as say 3m 8518, but i want the longer lasting option . Hence the Avery is 1.5ml polyurethane lam.

    Any real world info would be great fellas....

    Thanks

    We love it, but don't use 1405 on vehicles... It works fine its overkill and a bit aggressive.

    Really...... EZ RS is aggressive?
    What do you prefer?
    Also if you dont use it on vehicles what would you use it on?

    We have used it on Vehicles but the adhesive initial tack and cured hold strength is higher than 1105 or 180. We use it for walls mainly.

    For a Kia Forte we would use 1105 with 1060z

    For vehicles we use 1105 with 6460 laminate - that combo gives the longest warranty.

    So on hoods and roofs out in Arizona what have you found to be the longest lasting lamination ?

    Do you find the 6460 stretches into deep recesses well.....? Like on Sprinter vans and Bumper fog light areas? Also are you giving a warranty on hood and roof printed wraps?

    Yes, and I don't give a warranty of material here in AZ only our workmanship. This environment is brutal and nothing lasts in AZ.

    Yes it stays in recesses well.
    For warranty we give people 3 years.
    We are Zone 2 here so 1105/6460 warranty is 6 yr vertical and 3 yr horizontal.
    I tell people it should last longer on vertical surfaces but you might notice ink fading after 3 yrs.

    We have been using 1105 with 6460 for about a year now and love it! It is a great product combo and with the horizontal warranty, you can’t beat it.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experiences.
    I will definitely give it a try on my next couple of wraps. ✌
