Gerber StrikeGuard™ Overlaminate Overlaminate
Gerber StrikeGuard™ Overlaminate
Gerber StrikeGuardTM Overlaminate is a 200 micron, clear glossy overlaminate film designed for a variety of applications.
This heavy-duty overlaminate film is ideal for the protection of graphics - for up to two years - and is especially beneficial where printed graphics experience severe handling and forceful impact.
Gerber StrikeGuardTM is not recommended in applications that require petrochemical protection or where additional UV or vandal resistance is desired.
For protection from petrochemical exposure, refer to the GerberGuardTM Product Bulletin or to the Gerber UVGuardTM Product Bulletin for information on protecting graphics from ultraviolet light or from graffiti.

Special Application Note:
Gerber StrikeGuardTM and QUANTUM 2000 are part of a total system designed for creating EDGE-printed decals and graphics for helmets and hard hats made of polycarbonate. The adhesive systems of both Gerber StrikeGuardTM and Gerber QUANTUM 2000 have been evaluated on polycarbonate. Results are there is no observed effect or degradation on polycarbonate strength. However, because the materials used for the manufacturing of such helmets can vary by manufacturer, the user must determine the suitability of the QUANTUM 2000 and StrikeGuardTM products prior to their actual use.
The StrikeGuard/QUANTUM 2000 construction will achieve an excellent bond to polycarbonate.
However, easy removal can be achieved with this construction within 12-months of the initial
application with minimal adhesive residue remaining on the substrate.
* Testing was conducted on LEXAN® brand polycarbonate from GE Plastics.
