    Hey y’all, been a while but I have a problem that you may be able to help on. On each new iPhone launch I have some very special clients who I design a new iPhone skin for. Well, I got my new 11 pro max and designed the skin... and nothing sticks to that back glass... nothing! I even broke out the reflective and started looking to see if I had any convex (I think that was the old MX stuff I used)...

    It’s all solid color stuff I normally do but do y’all have any suggestions?

    It has more to do with the surface energy of the glass and any adhesive trying to stick to it than the vinyl. I’m drawing a blank here!

    So far...they are correct! I have a friend that applies silicone to an adhesive but it has to have a huge electrical charge on it as they flash it to give enough surface energy for the adhesive to stick... how can I tell my customers to electrify their phones?

    I'd be afraid a corona treatment might fry the electronics https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corona_treatment.

    Might want to hit it extremely fast with an open flame, but that's also dicey.

    Substance Inc Ultra Curve 660 might work. I have a friend with an 11 let me see if it will stick.
