  • Durability
    The durability of the film is 5 years outdoors. While all Permacolor overlaminating films have UV resistance built in to help extend the life of your image, the durability of the image is mainly dependent upon the quality of the inks (see technical data sheets given by the ink manufacturers) and pressure sensitive media being used.
  • Shelf Life
    Two years when stored at 75°F (24°C) and 50% relative humidity or less. Note: Mactac recommends that rolls be stored on end or suspended from the core.
  • Chemical Resistance
    This laminate is resistant for short periods of time immersed in water and for short contact with detergents, alcohol and some aliphatic solvents. This product is not recommended for contact with ketones, esters, aromatic solvents and chlorinated hydrocarbons.
  • Limitations
    1) The user is responsible for determining the product’s suitability, including adhesion and if needed, removal characteristics when used in applications other than listed specifically in this Performance Guide.
    2) If there are any questions about applications, please contact your Mactac sales representative to discuss your requirements for recommendations.
    3) If this is a printed Performance Guide it is an uncontrolled document. Please check the Mactac website for the latest, most up-to-date version.
  • Recommendations
    • Where exposure to moisture, chemicals, solvents or high pressure wash is anticipated, Mactac recommends sealing the edges with varnish, silicone or other sealant to prevent penetration by these liquids.
    • Overlaminates should not be applied onto dusty or dirty prints.
    • The mounting board must be properly prepared prior to mounting the image. This may include wiping with alcohol, light sanding or surface sealing depending on the board. Contact your board supplier for their recommendation.
    • Mactac's pressure sensitive mounting films are intended for "Cold Roll Lamination" (40°F - 104°F). The addition of heat while simultaneous mounting with Thermal Overlaminates may result in curl or have other detrimental effects on the finished product.
    • Whenever possible, always test first to ensure end-use capability.
