The pixels should be installed on a clean and dry surface. Please clean the surface with alcohol using a clean cloth prior to installation.
The surface should be thermally conductive and permit sufficient heat dissipation (especially for pixel strips). Check out ENTTEC’s aluminium extrusions to get an idea of the best surfaces for optimum performance (note: these products are not available for purchase in Europe or the USA).
The surface should not be textured or a low surface energy material.
