The cold roll lamination method must be used when
applying Overlaminate 8580 to Graphic Film IJ380.

Proper ink drying after printing is very important to
minimize the risk of film lifting in recesses.
It is recommended to allow a minimum of 24 hours
after printing before laminating the graphics with
3M™ Scotchcal™ 8580 Overlaminate film.

Care must be taken not to create tension in the
overlaminate during the laminating process. Tension

higher ambient temperatures. This could result in the
graphic construction lifting when applied into deep
