Has anyone had a problem with cast vinyl breaking down. I have been advised UV Inhibitor was left out of a batch of vinyl. Unfortunately they say this is not covered by their warranty!! Materials only - No labour to repair.

Sorry for the late reply. What brand of cast did you use? I find it hard to beleive (if it was a well known brand name) that they left out the UV prohibitors. I used to be in the selling game for six years for a well known brand. I know the strict procedures they went thru to make the product. i have also seen 3m computer cut turn very brittle and flake off vans. That was at least 3.5 years ago. so it does happen. Most companies you will find will not reimburse you for ink, time and what not. so depends on how well you know the company, how much you buy from them in regards to if they will compensate you for anything other than the media. I would keep onto your rep for compensation as they will do it if you keep onto them. If they dont then take your business elsewhere, when they come back asking why you are not buying you tell them its from that incident. Hopefully then you will see a result. hope this helps

sounds like a story they are telling you to me.

If it was faulty manufacture, they should pay ALL expenses in its replacement. Also, it it was a manufacturing error, I would have thought the industry press would have run with a story warning others.

It would have been many many rolls made in a batch, and you are the only one with a bad roll? I don't think so.

If it was fitted to their requirements, and failed, they are only obligated to replace the material, but not pay for re fitting.

Not sure how that works, but went down this path with 3M many years ago.

Was the material over laminated? A number of outside influences can cause vinyl to become brittle and break down, obviously number one is UV, but also things like chemicals can cause the plasticisers to prematurely leave the film and therefor become brittle, generally if it was a manufacturing fault you would see this over a vast amount of material and it would be traceable via the batch numbers supplied with the material.

In terms of warranties, most manufacturers have a general product warranty that cover replacement material only and this is only if the material is a fault, which can be determined via the commencement of a warranty claim and subsequent investigation.
