Brand: LexJet

LexJet CrystalClear Permanent Adhesive provides the exceptional clarity and ease of use needed for face-mounting graphics to rigid, clear surfaces including acrylic, Plexiglass, Lexan, polycarbonate or glass. It is a popular choice for mounting backlit images, and can also be used to mount motion- or 3D-graphics to lenticular lenses.

CrystalClear Permanent Adhesive consists of a thin, clear polyester film coated on both sides with an optically clear, permanent adhesive. A clear polyester release liner protects each side of the film until the adhesive is ready to apply.

How Bumblejax Gives Mounted Photos Some Real Pop

When Seattle, Wash.-based Bumblejax wanted to create an ecommerce site that allowed anyone to have access to high-end, modern face-mounted photo displays, they tested out several different photo papers before settling on the winning product. "The thing about acrylic face-mounting is that not all papers work well with it," says Tate Dwinnell, who runs Bumblejax with his brother, Corey.

Laminator Compatibility It's recommended that your laminator be equipped with a release liner take-up reel. All LexJet laminates are provided on 3" standard cores.
Laminator Settings Apply 80-100 psi and use 2-3 feet per minute for dwell time. Between 90° to 100° F heat is recommended, to help the adhesive flow will produce a more consistent adhesion to the print. All substrates should be tested for your specific application prior to final job production.
Using a Sled It is strongly recommended that you use a rigid sled (1/8" or thicker) such as polycarbonate, acrylic, masonite or aluminum. This will ensure consistent pressure across the web. Apply a release liner to your sled to prevent adhesive build-up. Use strong tape, such as packaging tape, to attach the entire width of the leading edge of the graphic to the sled.
Adhesive Cure Time After applying the laminate, allow curing for a minimum of 2 hours before cutting or trimming. Maximum bond strength is reached in 24 hours.
