LexJet Elite Matte UV Vinyl Laminate 3.2 Mil with PreLume® technology can help you produce graphics that instantly look whiter and brighter. The PreLume technology in this flexible, calendered PVC film provides a quick way to dramatically improve the look of your prints without tweaking printer settings or color profiles. LexJet’s patented PreLume technology improves color accuracy by eliminating color casts in printable papers and films, and extends the useful life of the printed image by preventing the graphic from yellowing over time.
The matte finish of this laminating film minimizes glare and the high-quality acrylic, solvent-based pressure-sensitive adhesive helps produce a strong, permanent bond of the laminating film to the graphic.
The UV inhibitors help extend the life of the laminating film and the vibrancy of the underlying colors, particularly when the graphics are exposed to sunlight or fluorescent lights for extended periods of time.
LexJet Elite Matte UV Vinyl Laminate 3.2 Mil was previously known as LexJet 3.2 Mil GraphicsGuard™ UV Matte w/ PreLume®.
