Tell Me Something Good

ORAJET® 3971RA+PS combined with ORAGUARD® 279 is extremely conformable. The material is soft and light, making repositioning during installation effortless. There is no worry of fingering and tunneling around trimmed edges or material shrinkage. The semi-gloss finish of ORAGUARD® 279 is smooth and silky. The white point of ORAJET® 3971RA+PS is spot on, producing amazing printability!"
