Questions about Turnigy (Tronxy) X5S

i received this nice printer on monday and started to buid it in the monday evening. I am almost ready now, was not a big job, it was not my first 3D-printer.
There is one M4-screw missing, but it is possible that i used it instead of a shorter one on the rubber boots, i have to check this tomorow. need to cable the thing tomorow, too.
But i have one question: For the heat bed there is a print board made out of something like epoxy and a self adhesive big symbol saying that the surface is hot. Is the symbol something that can be printed on and should be glued to the print bed , or is it a part that should be glued to the aluminium heatbed?

Thanks a lot

    OK, thanks for the answer, my printer has made his first print, looks good, but not perfect. Have to tweak the leveling, one belt was not fastened enough.

    Yes you can print on it. I have used a plastic scraper to get the par off it comes clean

    Having printed a lot, i don't use the black printing plastic, i use pertinax in most cases, bluetape and glass to print on, depending on the things i want to print. The glas is used all time to get the aluminium bed straight...
