Solvent Resistance & Environmental Data - Autotex AM

Solvent Resistance & Environmental Data - Autotex AM


Autotex AM is based upon biaxially orientated polyester film and therefore has much enhanced solvent resistance, strength, durability and toughness compared to other commonly used membrane fascia and nameplate substrates such as polycarbonate and vinyl.

Autotex AM withstands exposure of more than 24 hours duration under DIN 42 115 Part 2 to the following chemicals without visible change:

Autotex AM withstands DIN 42 115 Part 2 exposure of <1 hour duration to glacial acetic acid without visible change.

Autotex AM is NOT resistant to the following chemicals:


Autotex AM withstands 24 hours exposure to the following reagents at 50oC without visible staining:


Very slight discoloration was noted under critical viewing conditions with the following materials:


2.1 Minimum use temperature:

Tactile embossed Autotex AM has been tested to 0.5 million switch operations at -40oC (-40oF) without loss of function.

2.2 Maximum use temperature:

High humidity environments:              (10-95% RH) ≤60oC

Low humidity environments:               (<10% RH) 85oC

2.3 Outdoor Use:

In common with all polyester based films Autotex AM is not suitable for use in conditions of long term exposure to direct sunlight. (See Autotex XE)
