PF Film

The PF is similar to the WF product except the Gel material is not bonded to its clear polyester substrate. This allows the Gel Film® material to be easily removed from the polyester backing material, otherwise known as "Free-Gel". The PF film is optically clear. The more commonly used version of “Free-Gel" is the purified Gel version referred to as DGL Film.

PF film is available in standard square, rectangular, and round sheet sizes or can be custom cut to any shape and size per the customer’s specific requirements.
