- ORACAL 651 Intermediate Cal Vinyl
America's leading high gloss intermediate vinyl. Thanks to its proprietary formulation and construction, ORACAL Series 651 has become the industry standard for high performance calendered films. Only 2.5 mils thick, ORACAL 651 offers six year outdoor durability, flexibility, thermal print compatibility, and a choice of over 60 high-gloss colors. This high-quality film is a good choice for moderately complex jobs that don't require the extra conformability provided by ORACAL's cast films. Ideal for short and medium term outdoor applications. Indoor exposure is almost unlimited. Surface glossy color. 78# release liner which provides excellent weeding and release values. A light blue, silicone-coated paper is used on white vinyl to form a stronger contrast to lettering. Oracal 651 is a performance grade vinyl well suited for indoor and outdoor applications. It was originally designed for fleet vehicle graphics making it a perfect choice for cars. The solvent based permanent adhesive makes it a great choice for wet area applications such as boats or other outdoor places. It can still be used indoors on walls but has a much higher potential to cause damage when removed.
