    I'm looking for a clear vinyl I can print on my epson s80600, that has air-egress so it can be applied dry and removed. As close to optically clear as possible, even if it takes a couple days for it to wet out.

    I've tried ij180mc-114, but the air channels never really seem to wet out like I had hoped. Will the 40C-114R turn out the same?

    I think "optically clear" and "air egress" are mutually exclusive features.

    If you need optically clear you are not going to get that with a film that has egress. Either print and cut it or install O.C. wet.

    Bigfish has clear iDot that does what you are describing.

    Pretty much what I was guessing. Wet install wouldn't be a problem, but they're small items that the customer wants to be able to apply themselves, and they're not going to want to do wet.


    I'll have to take a look at that, thanks.

    Possibly a clear static cling if it is going on windows?

    This particular project would be going on plastic, and they want the color of the plastic to show through as much as possible.

    I would recommend DPF8000 Clear if these are decals going on plastic. It can usually be applied by our customers without many bubbles and once it sets it is not coming off.
