ADHESIVE

Our wide selection of adhesive films is described below.

Optically-Clear Adhesive Vinyl

Premium Optically Clear removable (with heat) adhesive used for shop windows, back-light applications on acrylic and other creative design ideas using clear substrates with layered printing and white inks.

By default the No Lamination option is selected for OCV but you may want to add laminate for print side protection and to add some rigidity for easier installation.

Our Gloss laminate is a premium product has great optical clarity, works well as a dry erase and is resistant to all graffiti that can be removed using isophopyl alcohol. However, you should always select our polypropylene based Anti-Graffiti Laminate if you wish to use harsher solvents than isophopil alocohol to remove graffiti. Harsh solvents like acetone will "melt" our regular Gloss Laminate.

Our Gloss or Anti-Graffiti laminates will both work great on OCV as they have great optical clarity. However, if you have large areas of you OCV graphic that are unprinted and you want 100% clarity in those area you should select Optically Clear Laminate.

Finishing
  • No Laminate
  • Hand cut to PDF File Dimensions
  • No layers (Standard Image Printing)

  • Maximum size for Cut to Shape is 50"x 96"

Notes:

  • Supply normal "right reading" artwork. Our processes will reverse the image when required
