The KAVAN iron-on film is made from a very thin and light polyester polymer with high strength covered with a layer of heat-activated adhesive with pigments with excellent high coverage. It is supplied in rolls with a width of 64 cm and a length of 2 m, the lower side with the adhesive is protected by a clear film.
The KAVAN iron-on foil is resistant to modeling fuels - incandescent, detonating and gasoline.
The thickness of the film is 50-65 µm (including glue) and the surface weight is 63-70 g/m2 (darker colors are somewhat lighter than lighter ones).
Shrinkage of the film is 5-10%; the same in all directions.
For ironing it is possible to use ordinary modeling irons and hot air guns, the working temperature range is approx. 95-180°C. The optimal temperature for attaching to the frame is approx. 95-100°C, the temperature for tensioning approx. 130-140°C, for strongly curved surfaces 140-160°C.
