ALC Deep Grain Textured overlaminate is a 200 micron matte floor overlaminte with a life span of up to 2 years outdoors vertical, and 1 year indoors depending on position and application.
To ensure the integrity of the product is maintained and the adhesion (stick) factor is not altered, it is vital to apply the laminate to the print through a roll laminator (do not wet apply). For optimal results it is recommended to use a heat assist laminator to a temperature of 50°C and to avoid curl the tension should be as little as possible (nill is best). The maximum nip pressure (whilst avoiding creasing) should be selected on your laminator. Prints should be degassed for 24 hours if hung vertically and for 48 hours if left horizontal to ensure sufficent degassing of inks prior to lamination. Laminating protects against abrasion, moisture and constant print surface contact.
