MACtac® Expands Line of Overlaminate Options for Indoor Floor Graphics
For years, MACtac® Graphic Products has provided its customers with extensive media and overlaminating film
combinations for producing great looking, high-performing floor graphics. Broadening the array of available solutions,
MACtac adds three new PERMACOLOR® overlaminates – each specifically designed to meet varying durability
In response to the recent increase in customers’ price-conscience purchasing decisions, MACtac has added
two indoor floor graphic products to its line of PERMACOLOR PermaFlex® overlaminates, PF6400 and PF6500.
Designed for short-term applications such as some retail, event or tradeshow promotions, MACtac’s new
PERMACOLOR PermaFlex PF6400 not only protects and enhances printed floor graphics, but is also available
at an attractive price. PERMACOLOR PermaFlex PF6400 is a 3.75-mil clear, textured polyolefin film featuring a
glossy finish that helps eliminate glare and provides a clear view of the printed graphic.
For medium-term applications, the new PERMACOLOR PermaFlex PF6500 textured overlaminate offers superior
scuff resistance and image clarity. With durability of up to three months, this 4.3-mil clear PVC intermediate
laminate is great for indoor point-of-purchase floor graphic applications like seasonal retail signage promotions.
Finally, MACtac’s trusted PERMACOLOR RAYZor™ Gloss LF3640 -- a customer favorite for window film and
vehicle wrap applications -- was recently approved for long-term indoor floor graphics (up to one year durability).
The 1.5-mil clear gloss cast PVC film answers customer demand for a crisp high-gloss finish with slip resistance.
It offers superior graphic protection and added ease of installation.
"The new additions to MACtac’s PERMACOLOR line of pressure-sensitive overlaminates give printers a
widened selection of overlaminate film solutions to choose from, no matter the project’s specifications," said
Mary Ann Kucera, marketing manager, MACtac Graphic Products. "Until now, most of our textured laminates
were designed for high-end applications such as retail and point-of-purchase displays, but customers need to
distinguish themselves through creative and unique advertising and promotion – and floor graphics are one way
they can stand out.”
Each new PERMACOLOR overlaminate has a clear acrylic permanent adhesive and has been tested and is
rated for slip resistance based on the ASTM C-1028 test method. In addition to their use as overlaminates for
floor graphics, the laminates can also be used to protect printed graphics for wall murals, tradeshow and
promotional displays and retail advertising, ensuring all performance and safety needs are met at a competitive
