2.Adhesive Vinyl Products Losing Adhesion or Curling:

Solution: Use a heat gun to seal edges after applying adhesive vinyl products. This helps ensure better adhesion and prevents curling issues.

3.Soft Film Fragility:

Soft films should not be left outdoors during winter as they become fragile and prone to breakage upon impact.

Solution: Before installation, ensure soft films are acclimatized to temperatures above 15°C. UV soft films, especially those with darker ink thickness, should be unpacked and installed only when at room temperature. Pre-heating the film before installation minimizes unnecessary damage.

4.Cracking of Advertising Images:

Winter conditions may cause advertising images to crack, typically due to sudden temperature drops and various material factors such as canvas and ink quality.

Solution: Initially, address cracks and separations with a hairdryer or heat gun to seal any fissures. However, to prevent such issues entirely, prioritize high-quality materials for canvases and inks to mitigate the risk of cracking and ensure durability.

By implementing these solutions and using suitable adhesive vinyl rolls, advertisers can maintain the integrity of their advertising images even during the winter season.
