3M Introduces New Environmentally-preferred Promotional Film

The 3M Graphics Market Center has released 3M™ Scotchcal™ Graphic Film IJ35E-20R – a polyolefin film compatible with piezo inkjet, screen and electrostatic printing platforms for promotional applications.

10/15/2008

The new polyolefin film and polyolefin overlaminates 3M™ Scotchcal™ Luster Overlaminate 8908 and Matte Overlaminate 8909 have no monomeric plasticizers or polyvinylchloride in their constructions and are made with less solvent in manufacturing compared to traditional solvent-based adhesive products. They represent steps 3M is taking to offer new environmentally-preferred alternatives.

Chloride-free constructions such as these eliminate halogen-related disposal concerns. When printed with UV ink‚ VOC emissions associated with solvent inks are dramatically reduced‚ resulting in graphic constructions that have less impact on the environment.

Film IJ35E-20R offers excellent image quality for indoor and outdoor applications and has a one-year expected performance life. Recommended uses include general signage‚ architectural applications‚ display and exhibit graphics‚ POP signs‚ flat vehicle graphics and more.

The 4-mil polyolefin film has a matte surface with superior layflat characteristics‚ excellent imaging and slip-resistant liner. Its gray, removable adhesive provides hiding power and reliable adhesion throughout the graphic’s life.

“This environmentally-preferred construction offers 3M quality at an affordable price‚” said Jason Amidon‚ marketing supervisor‚ 3M Graphics Market Center.
