"Overlaminates 3658G and 3660M are two new and useful offerings in 3M’s comprehensive sign portfolio"

3M Commercial Graphics is introducing two new overlaminates to give graphics professionals maximum flexibility and to give their customers peace of mind. With 3M™ Scotchcal™ Gloss Overlaminate 3658G and 3M™ Scotchcal™ Matte Overlaminate 3660M, sign shops can create finished graphics covered by the industry leading 3M™ MCS™ Warranty for up to nine years of outdoor use.

When combined with 3M's recommended products, overlaminates 3658G and 3660M provide added durability to flexible, rigid, flat and thermoformed sign faces, giving users maximum efficiency and flexibility for multiple sign face constructions. These 2-mil overlaminates assure an excellent long-term appearance for graphics by protecting sign faces from environmental factors, including ultraviolet light.
