Mactac launches eco laminate for anti-graffiti window films

Mactac launches PERMACOLOR PermaGard SAG 38, an economy laminate for anti-graffiti and perforated window films.

In response to customer demand for an economy laminate that can be used for short-term anti-graffiti and perforated window film applications, Mactac Graphic Products developed PERMACOLOR PermaGard SAG 38 (SAG38W54L150).

The most economical offering in Mactac’s trusted PermaGard series, PermaGard SAG 38 films can be applied over graphics and windows to protect against graffiti, light abrasion and graphic fading caused by UV rays. In addition, PermaGard SAG 38 films offer perfect optical clarity, which makes them an excellent choice for protecting one-way vision/perforated window films.

“Customers have been looking for that perfect combination of price and functionality in a laminate for short-term window applications—and PERMACOLOR PermaGard SAG 38 films deliver,” said Jeff Stadelman, marketing manager, Mactac Graphic Products. “The addition of SAG 38 rounds out the PermaGard line. Now, customers can choose the laminate option that best meets their budget and application needs: economy, intermediate or high performance.”

PermaGard SAG 38 laminate is a 1.5-mil, high-gloss, ultra-clear durable polyester facestock coated with an optically clear, acrylic pressure-sensitive adhesive. It is protected by a 1.5-mil smooth PET film release liner.

In addition to offering resistance against dirt, moisture and other hazards of indoor and outdoor environments, PermaGard SAG 38 films can be cleaned with most commercially available graffiti-removing cleaners that do not contain grit.

For best results, PermaGard SAG 38 films can be laminated to a pressure-sensitive print media and then applied onto flat surfaces. The films can be laminated to photographic prints, transparencies, latex, solvent-, eco-solvent, water-based and UV inkjet prints.

Ideal for short-term outdoor installations and indoor installations of up to five years, PermaGard SAG 38 films have a two-year shelf life.
