How to choose the right self-adhesive deco film for your application?

Step 1: Identify the type of surface to be wrapped

The first step in choosing a self-adhesive deco film is to identify the specific type of surface to be wrapped. It is important to take into account the texture, size and shape of the surface, as well as where it is located (indoor or outdoor, high traffic area etc.).

Step 2: Choose the type of self-adhesive film

Once you have identified the surface to be wrapped, you can choose the type of self-adhesive film from the HEXIS range that is most suitable. There are different types of self-adhesive films:

  • Films for walls
  • Films for furniture
  • Window graphics: films for glass
  • Floor graphics etc.

Each type of self-adhesive film is designed for a specific purpose. In addition, a self-adhesive film has its own unique characteristics in terms of texture, adhesion, strength and appearance.

Step 3: Choose the design

Once you have chosen the type of self-adhesive film that best suits the surface to be wrapped, it is time to choose the design. The HEX’Perience library includes a wide range of designs for self-adhesive deco films. Our designs range from the most basic to the most sophisticated. You will also find solid colours with textured effects, from light shades to the brightest colours.

Step 4: Choose the finish

Once you have chosen the design, you can add a laminate to obtain a unique finish. You can choose from our laminates:

  • Satin
  • Gloss
  • Matt
  • Wood effect (wood with knots, alpine wood etc.), leather, sparkle, carbon, brushed aluminium brossé etc.

In conclusion, choosing the right self-adhesive deco film for your particular application may seem complicated at first.
