Protect surfaces from unwanted latex paint stains or vinyl that requires weeding. The company Oracal designed the Oramask 813 stencil film for stain and stencil applications. It uses a water-based, low-tack removable adhesive. As a result, it is easy to apply and safe to use. Oracal has released a safety sheet revealing that first aid is unnecessary if the film comes in contact with human skin and can be disposed of naturally.
We recommend using the Oracal 813 on smooth, clean surfaces like concrete. Avoid using it for any wet applications. The same goes for porous or freshly painted surfaces. If you apply the Oramask to them, you must clean up the adhesive residue. Wait for any paint to dry, and try a different material for any porous limestone or wood. Aim for these applications– smooth, flat, and rigid.
Application Areas For Oramask 813
The Oramask 813 can cover large areas of drywall, cabinets, and floors. Gymnasiums can use the masks for applications on the floors, for basketball and tennis court lines. You can also use them for signage and hobby applications.
This film comes in translucent blue and has a matte surface. It has a shelf life of two years. With this limited time, try to order what you need for a project within this time. The minimum application temperature should be fifty degrees Fahrenheit. Use the removable adhesive backing to prevent any bleeding during the stencils.

How Is the 813 Different From The Oracal 811?
Oracal 811 is also used for latex applications. The 811 and the 813 are applicable to large surfaces and have a matte finish. The main difference is the color and the transparency; the 813 is blue and translucent. In contrast, the 811 is white and opaque. It is also better for even surfaces, if not necessarily smooth ones.
