    have to do some graphics on a van for a customer for a show. they will remove after a week roughly. normally i use oracal 3751 for stuff like this but they want to remove in a week and i have seen a few times this material will leave the gray adhesive when removing in some places so need a material with air egress and clean removability . any suggestions????

    Something like 3M IJ180-10UR? (UR = Ultra Removable)

    How big are the graphics? Something like iDot could work for that.

    Do you think IJ40c will not remove quickly after a week?

    I'd just add for in house removal of the grey adhesive from your oracal 3751 and roll with it. Does removing the adhesive tend to damage the finish of the paint or something?

    Cleaning the adhesive of any kind of vinyl is so easy after only being on a car for a week, I would just whatever you are used to using. For the cut vinyl just use whatever you have on hand, and for printed strips and logos use whatever you normally use.

    Are you doing a wrap... or just flat graphics?

    Use IJ3555. It's whats mostly used on Busses / Skytrains here... It'll stick just fine, but it's a "changeable" film, comes off pretty easy when you try... but sticks on good enough to drive around 10 hours a day without falling off.

    Yup 3M changeable/replaceable transit films would work for this. They remove perfectly even after months. I would recommend IJ3552c so it can confirm and hold well.

    3M 3552 meant for short term removable transit graphics

    In a week I don’t see hardly any product not removing cleanly. I’d use some cheap calendar film....... it’s a week.
    At the very best I’d use ij40c
    Why waste money/profit on a job that doesn’t need expensive material.

    General Formulations Concept 201OAP AE. Says it's permanent adhesive but it removes cleanly years down the track.

    Make sure it's laminated for easy removal.
