While 3M has a number of overlaminating films in their portfolio, two products, in particular, should be considered when looking for products that can withstand the test of time.
3M™ Overlaminating Film 7733FL is a 1.0 mil clear UV resistant polyester providing superior humidity and solvent resistance. The adhesive used in the product is 3M™ Adhesive 400 which works well in low temperatures while also resisting fading and yellowing. When used with 3M™ Polyester label stocks, the film can survive three years outdoors. Application ideas include protection for labels and nameplates used on appliances and industrial equipment.
3M™ Overlaminating Film 7735FL is a 3.0 mil acrylar film offering exceptional outdoor durability and UV resistance. After ten years of constant outdoor use when paired with 3M™ Polyester label stocks the material will still retain clarity and legibility for the graphics below. Consider using 3M™ Overlaminating film 7735FL to protect labels used in outdoor applications for long periods of time. The material has also been proven to protect destructible facestocks without affecting their performance.
