This European Standard defines adhesive backed polymeric film based on biaxially oriented polyester film, and the performance characteristics of adhesive backed polymeric film for use on glass in buildings.
This European Standard does not apply to adhesive backed polymeric films manufactured using polyvinylchloride (PVC).
Other requirements, not specified in this standard, may apply to other glass or glazing products, e.g. laminated glass or insulating glass units, when adhesive backed polymeric film is included as part of the original assembly or manufacture of the glazing product. These additional requirements are specified in the appropriate product standard. Adhesive backed polymeric film, in this case, does not lose its mechanical or thermal characteristics.
