Best vinyl for high temperature outdoor use.

Recommended Posts

Hello all, noob here. I live in Southern Cali where the sun is merciless and the weather is hot. I'd like to apply vinyl to outdoor glass and was wondering what kind will be best suitable for my needs. I don't want my work to peel off the same year I do it. Any suggestions? Thanks!

oracal 751 or 3M, we both extensively and we are in one of the few spots in the country where the UV is so bad 3M actually adjusts their warranty period for us.

in any case you should get 3-4 years out of your vinyl if you are in direct south facing sun/UV.

 

Watch out for reflective, with high UV it tends to "burn" rather quickly. (2-3 years max).

Would 951 be better? 

 

According to my oracal book 

 

951: 12 years for black and white and 10 years for colors

 

751: 8 years for black and white and 7 for colors.
