UNPACKING & STORAGE
Unpackage the product upon arrival and remove from the box. Note, during long-term storage, permanent curling or creases can develop. To avoid this, remove from the box and lay flat with a few weighted objects on each corner of the pads.
The Orthodek polyester backing, which protects the Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA), can be affected by humidity over time. If stored in a dry, cool area, the PSA can be preserved for later installation. Storage in a dark area (i.e. no sunlight) will ensure that no fading will occur and that all colors will match upon later installation.
SITUATIONS TO AVOID
Storing or installing the pads near reflective surfaces which can magnify light and cause intensified heat and potential discoloration.
