Tuff-Cover™ UV 9 Laminate

Protect your labels from Harsh Environments and UV Damage

 

GMS Media Tuff-Cover

 

If you are creating labels or signs that will be exposed to UV or harsh environments, Tuff-Cover™ Laminate will give your markings the protection they need to last a long time.

Tuff-Cover is an 8 mil velvet textured laminate, with a clear, permanent, acrylic pressure sensitive adhesive. Tuff-Cover has almost double the UV blocking power of other outdoor laminates, keeping colors bright for up to 9 years.

Another benefit of Tuff-Cover laminate is that you can use it with either vinyl or polyester base materials. For membrane switch overlays, Tuff-Cover withstands many times more push-button actuations when compared to polycarbonates. This film also exhibits excellent resistance to cracking (flex-stress tests) under the stress of push-button overlay applications.
