10 Mil White Opaque Backer is a white opaque, co-polymer film with an optically clear highperformance,
permanent, pressure-sensitive adhesive designed to be applied to thinner print
films for added stability and color pop. It can instantly make graphics printed in reverse on a
clear film look brighter and whiter, because the opaque white surface helps to offset yellow and
gray color shifts that can occur with printed clear films. The solvent-based, acrylic adhesive is
acid-free, and pH neutral for extended use without yellowing or fading. 10 Mil White Opaque
Backer is ideal for pop-up booth graphics that are applied to fabric panels.

Laminator Compatibility Recommended that your laminator be equipped with a release liner take-up reel. 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.
Laminator Settings Apply 90-120°F (38°C) to help the adhesive flow, which will produce a more consistent adhesion to
the print. Apply 80-100 psi and use 2-3 feet per minute for dwell time depending on the application.
Your top and bottom web tension should be minimal to prevent curling of the graphic.
Finishing After applying the laminate, allow the panel to lay flat for a minimum of 2 hours before trimming, or
rolling. The adhesive fully sets in 24 hours.
