1.   Remove DI-NOC Exterior film by lifting one
     edge and pulling it off at a sharp angle - about
     135 degrees - with smooth, even tension. Use a
     heat gun with 90°C temperature. A scraper, such
     as a putty knife, may be used to lift the edge, if
     needed.
     Some adhesive residue may remain on typical
     outdoor surfaces. In that case use 3M™
     Scotchcal™ R-231 adhesive remover.
2.   It may also be helpful to cut the graphic into strips
     about 5 centimeters (2”) wide and then pull off
     each strip. Use a razor blade with safety handle.

    IMO testing for interior finishes
    Under requirements established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the U.S. Coast
    Guard and other maritime governing bodies, materials used as interior finishes on maritime vessels
    must be tested for surface flammability performance. These materials include bulkheads, laminates,
    ceilings, wall coverings and deck finishes.
   SBI = Single burning item test according to EN 13823
  SBI TEST
  The Single Burning Item (SBI), is a method of test for determining the reaction to fire behaviour of building
  products (excluding floorings) when exposed to the thermal attack by a single burning item (a sand-box
  burner supplied with propane). The specimen is mounted on a trolley that is positioned in a frame beneath
  an exhaust system. The reaction of the specimen to the burner is monitored instrumentally and visually.
  Heat and smoke release rates are measured instrumentally and physical characteristics are assessed by
  observation.

  FAR-25.853 is a vertical Bunsen burner test designed for FAA (Federal Aviation administration) for cabin
  and cargo compartment materials. The test method is intended for use in determining the resistance of
  materials to flame when tested according to the 60-sec (i) and 12-sec (ii) vertical Bunsen burner tests.

Primer
Generally on flat surfaces primer is not required. Only if the surface energy of the substrate is low or on critical
surfaces with sharp radius, edges where 3M™ DI-NOC™ Architectural Finishes is stretched primers can be
used. For high surface energy substrates such as metal or paint no primer is required. Primer is required at any
overlaps of the film. I.e. underneath the butt joint and wherever the material is stretched, see overview of
primers below:
