dc fix ALDER LIGHT sticky back plastic vinyl wrap film (1 to 15m long)
dc fix woodgrain sticky back plastic designs are so authentic, you will hardly believe it’s a vinyl film. Rejuvenate a worktop or wrap kitchen doors in minutes, giving them a real wood look. Many designs to choose from in light and dark shades, some even have a slight texture too!
dc fix is our preferred brand of vinyl film due to its 5* rating for adhesion, opacity, lightfastness, shrinkage and durability. The water based low tack adhesive allows it to be repositioned during application.
Quick and easy to apply to clean, smooth flat surfaces. Simply remove the backing paper little by little and smooth into place, moving the smoother side to side to eliminate air bubbles. If you make a mistake, peel back and start again. The film is heat resistant to 75C so OK for hot cups and plates but NOT hot pans. Always keep at least 12 inches away from naked flames.
Sticky back plastic is a non-permanent DIY solution for updating surfaces in the home. Perfect for tenants and landlords looking for a quick, easy and budget-friendly way of updating kitchen doors or rejuvenating old worktops. It’s also perfect for upcycling items of furniture. The film is fully removable – use a hairdryer to soften the adhesive first and warm soapy water to remove any remaining residue.
Wipe clean with a regular household cleaner. Wipe up spillages that may stain straight away (eg curry). Always use chopping boards for cutting and worktop savers for hot pans. If you do damage the surface, don’t worry, just cut out the damaged section and replace with a new piece of film, ensuring any joins are overlapped slightly!
