FEP films should be replaced when they show substantial signs of wear and tear such as deep scratches, punctures, and consistently result in failed prints.

What happens if FEP film is too tight?
However, if the Fep is worn or if it is either too loose or too tight, it may have an effect on the peel force, which in turn may cause the sticking problem.The editing of the component itself, such as poor positioning of the angle, hollowing, punching, etc., may result in excessive peel force or separation force, which may also contribute to sticking.This is a possibility because of the potential for the part to have been edited.
How do you make FEP less sticky?
To prevent your resin 3D prints from adhering to the FEP, you need to ensure that you have sufficient bottom layers and bottom layer curing time.This will give the resin sufficient time to solidify and prevent it from clinging to the FEP.After applying PTFE spray on your FEP film and allowing it to dry, a lubricant should have been created, which should prevent the resin from adhering to the resin tank.
What thickness is FEP film?

Why is my resin not sticking to my build plate?
The build plate and the first layer are likely responsible for the majority of the issues with adhesion that are occurring between the raft and the build plate. When trying large prints, you are far more likely to experience adhesion issues and even probable failures if the build plate is not flat.
