Application

Material Handling

  • This product is suitable for cold lamination using a laminator.
  • Ensure that the material has reached room temperature and relative humidity of 50% before use.

Over-laminating

  • Suitable for use on Solvent, Eco-Solvent Inkjet, and Latex prints on Metamark print media. Not suitable for UV prints.
  • The product is matched to Metamark MD-X. Matched laminates prevent tunneling and delamination.
  • Allow the inks to cure before over-laminating, usually 24-48 hours. Failure to do so can cause delamination, tunneling, and shrinkage.
  • Apply around 30C on the top roller to prevent silvering of the adhesive.
  • Refer to www.metamark.co.uk for further application guidelines.
  • The user should determine the suitability of the overlaminate to the print media.
