Optimal storage and climate conditions

The compliance with definite criteria of storage conditions for self-adhesive material is important to guarantee a high product quality even after delivery. In addition paper is sensitive to humidity. It reacts on differences between its own moisture content and the ambient moisture by changing its dimensions.

Storage Conditions for HERMA self-adhesive materials

HERMA self-adhesive materials are ideally stored in original packaging in dark and dry place in a temperature of 20 ± 5°C and in a relative humidity of 45 ± 5%.  If the storage conditions and the conditions at the place of converting are different, the material should have enough time for acclimatisation. Otherwise this might lead to converting problems. Generally the material should be unpacked just before converting.

The synthetic self-adhesive materials should not be stored under direct sunlight or heat, as otherwise this might lead to brittleness of the film. HERMA self-adhesive materials should be converted systematically based on the principle “first-in-first-out”. Also the shelf-life should be taken into account.
