3 Mil Fusion Finesse Polypropylene Laminate is a versatile, pressure-sensitive, laminating film
that can be used to economically produce a wide range of graphics on less costly cold-roll
laminators. Made from a proprietary co-polymer film, it is more rigid and has less curl than vinyl
films. It also doesnt yellow, and may appeal to environmentally-conscious customers who
prefer to use PVC-free materials. With a price point equivalent to thermal laminating films, 3 Mil
Fusion Finesse can be used to produce graphics for banner stands, trade-show displays, and POP

Recommend that you allow your print to dry for a minimum of 24 hours before lamination. In areas with high
humidity dry times can be longer.
Compatible with most hot and cold laminators. The laminator should be equipped with a release liner take-up roller.
Laminator Setting For best results, the following guidelines should be followed: top & bottom laminator rollers should be set to 100°F
(38°C). This softens the adhesive allowing for better conformation to the substrate. Nip pressure should be set to 80#
– 100# psi, and line speed should be 2-3 feet per minute. Heavy nip pressure is necessary for thick gauge laminates to
ensure a consistent bond to the substrate. Slower run speeds are necessary to avoid entrapment of air within the
lamination. The top and bottom web tension should be low to medium to prevent curling of the panel. A rigid sled at
least .125 (3.175mm) composed of a hard surface such as Masonite, acrylic or aluminum should be used to
guarantee consistent pressure across the web. Before lamination occurs the finished print must dry for a minimum of
Finishing After applying the laminate, allow the panel to lay flat for a minimum of 2 hours cure time before cutting, trimming
or rolling. Ideally, the lamination should be allowed to cure for 24 hours prior to trimming and rolling. When
trimming graphics, always cut the softer, thinner material first. With a freshly sharpened blade, cut using a straight
edge on tempered glass. Shipping/storage tubes should be ideally 12 diameter, but never less than 10 diameter.
Before lamination occurs the finished print must dry for a minimum of 24 hours.
