PRODUCT: CG8000 Gloss

The Permacolor system is a series of pressure sensitive products for mounting and
overlaminating in the imaging industries. Pressure sensitive Permacolor provides fast, efficient
processing through cold roll lamination techniques without the need for heat, drying or messy
coating operations.

The ColorGard® overlaminating films are a family of intermediate pressure sensitive adhesive
coated, clear overlaminating films that are available in a variety of surface finishes. These films
can be laminated to photographic prints, transparencies and digital images including UV inkjet,
solvent- and eco-solvent inkjet, and water-based inkjet prints to impart protection from abrasion,
moisture and other potentially damaging effects in both indoor and outdoor environments.

CG8000 Gloss is a vinyl film coated on one side with a clear acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive.
An easily removed ultra-smooth, 46#CCK liner protects the adhesive. CG8000 provides a
uniform, gloss surface that protects from abrasion, moisture and other potentially damaging
effects. It also helps retard color fade caused by ultra violet (UV) light exposure.

The durability of the film is 3-4 years in vertical (90±5°) applications outdoors and 5+ years
indoors. While all Permacolor overlaminating films have UV resistance built in to help extend
the life of your image, the durability of the image is mainly dependent upon the quality of the
inks (see technical data sheets given by the ink manufacturers) and pressure sensitive media being

⇒ Where exposure to moisture, chemicals, solvents or high pressure wash is anticipated,
MACtac recommends sealing the edges with varnish, silicone or other sealant to prevent
penetration by these liquids.
⇒ Overlaminates should not be applied onto dusty or dirty prints.
⇒ The mounting board must be properly prepared prior to mounting the image. This may
include wiping with alcohol, light sanding or surface sealing depending on the board.
Contact your board supplier for their recommendation.
⇒ MACtac’s pressure sensitive mounting films are intended for “Cold Roll Lamination”
(40°F – 104°F). The addition of heat while simultaneous mounting with Thermal
Overlaminates may result in curl or have other detrimental effects on the finished
⇒ Whenever possible, always test first to ensure end-use capability.
