Avery MPI 3901 PVC Free, Polyolefin Removable PSA Film

What is it?  A 2.6mil (65 micron) semi-gloss, polyolefin face film with a clear, removable adhesive on a clay-coated paper liner.

What makes this new product unique?

  • It is made of polyolefin and NOT PVC
  • This material originated in the label division of Avery Dennison and then was manufactured in a wide format size
  • This product does not shrink when applied to a surface or when decal cut
  • It has a very cost-effective price point
  • PVC-free to meet the ongoing demand to eliminate, or reduce the use of PVC in interior spaces
  • Good digital print quality on Latex(please refer to ink list below!) and UV-cure
  • No need to over laminate
  • Clear, removable adhesive
  • Recommended for Flat surfaces only – no conformability
  • Rated for 1 year outdoor life

Internal Testing Comments:

No shrink or edge curl: In our own internal tests this material printed very well on the HP LX560 with no profiling. It was applied to Coroplast and we noticed no shrink on the edges, even after cutting.

It cannot be re-positioned once applied: When peeled back, the material will show striations in the face film in the peel direction. This product is not a vinyl but a polyolefin, so there is no stretch in the product whatsoever . It is also not conformable so it is meant for flat applications.

End applications include flat, smooth surfaces such as:

  • Indoor graphics
  • Short term outdoor POP
  • Labels and decals
  • Wall decals

Compatible with:

  • UV-cure
  • Latex Inkjet (Compatible with Gen3 HP Latex ink 821, 831, 871, 881 and 891 only)
