3M Commercial Graphics is introducing two new overlaminates to give graphics professionals maximum flexibility and to give their customers peace of mind. With 3M Scotchcal Gloss Overlaminate 3658G and 3M Scotchcal Matte Overlaminate 3660M, sign shops can create finished graphics covered by the industry leading 3M MCS Warranty for up to nine years of outdoor use.
When combined with 3M's recommended products, overlaminates 3658G and 3660M provide added durability to flexible, rigid, flat and thermoformed sign faces, giving users maximum efficiency and flexibility for multiple sign face constructions. These 2-mil overlaminates assure an excellent long-term appearance for graphics by protecting sign faces from environmental factors, including ultraviolet light.
Designed for use on digitally imaged and electronically cut backlit sign faces, overlaminates 3658G and 3660M are compatible with:
• 3M Panagraphics III Wide Width Flexible Substrate
• 3M Envision Translucent Film Series 3730
• 3M Scotchcal Translucent Film Series 3630
• 3M Piezo Inkjet Inks
“Overlaminates 3658G and 3660M are two new and useful offerings in 3M’s comprehensive sign portfolio,” said Tony Fulco, 3M marketing manager. "We are focused on providing the solutions brand owners want by partnering with sign manufacturers to deliver unmatched versatility, durability and flexibility. With our portfolio of flexible substrates, translucent films, inks and graphic protection products, sign manufacturers know they can count on us to meet their needs.”
