MediaShield Matt UV 4mil overlaminating film offers a non glare, matte finish without sacrificing color definition. It is perhaps the highest quality matte laminating film on the market today. MediaShield Matt UV is a PVC (vinyl) overlaminating film coated with a solvent acrylic adhesive. MediaShield Matt UV is recommended for situations where a non glare finish is required or specific lighting conditions cannot be controlled. It is ideal for images such as trade show and POP displays that will be viewed under direct lighting from many different angles.

  • Image can be trimmed flush, or even die-cut without fear of delamination.

Technical Data

Tips For Applying MediaShield UV Heatset Films:

  • MediaShield UV Heatset films are an excellent choice for laminating multiple images which have been mounted onto a single board or substrate because they minimize air entrapment around the edges of each image.
  • To keep the film from stretching as it becomes soft and pliable when heated, apply only minimal brake tension to the unwind supply shaft and the release liner take-up.
  • Mediashield and thermal overlaminating films can be combined when encapsulating a graphic. For example: MediaShield Emerytex on the front and MHL White Backing on the back of the image is an ideal combination for trade show applications.
  • Adjust the take up shaft so that the release liner is removed just prior to entering the nip rollers. By reducing the adhesive's exposure to the air, there is less chance of picking up dust particles.
