Material Description.

This specification covers the performance requirement of gravel/abrasion resistant films (foils) with a pressure sensitive adhesive and protected with a release liner. These films may include a premask for ease of application, and alignment proposes. These films may also be decorative, i.e., pigmented or screen printed.

Grade B; films are other types of polymers.

Type II; Non-visible Surface Protection Films. This film (without a clear coat) is designed for non-visible surface protection from closure over slam conditions, or separating two (2) dissimilar metals.
