From Acid Dew in L.A. to Intense UV in New Orleans; Here's the Solution

Includes performance warranty for horizontal surfaces

St. Paul, MINN. – (October 19, 2011) – SGIA Booth #1437 – 3M Commercial Graphics introduces Scotchcal brand Gloss Overlaminate 8528. This new overlaminate is specifically designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, including acid dew common in west coast cities like Los Angeles and extreme temperatures and ultraviolet rays typical in southern states like New Orleans.

"Our new overlaminate means longer-lasting graphics that stay vibrant, which helps make the most of our customers' investment and can set them apart from the competition," said Tim Boxeth, business manager for 3M Commercial Graphics. "The glossy finish gives that wet-paint look that customers are demanding."

Scotchcal brand Gloss Overlaminate 8528 offers customers peace of mind with the industry's first published warranty for horizontal surfaces – two years for horizontal surfaces and up to seven years for vertical surfaces.

The 2-mil cast vinyl provides excellent conformability and dimensional stability. It is designed for use with solvent, latex and UV inkjet inks.
