ImagePerfect™ 2830-108 Lotus Guard is a clear gloss laminate with nanoscopic and hydrophobic features offering high dirt and water repellent properties.
Using state-of-the-art coating technology, the product features a 'lotus effect' whereby water will run cleanly from the film without leaving streaks or marks. The low energy surface also prevents dirt and other debris from sticking, acting as an effective self-cleaning laminate for the easy maintenance of many different kinds of installation (with limited conformability), including outdoor signage and exterior glass surfaces in retail locations, offices, educational establishments, event business locations and lifestyle business locations.
Due to its high level of transparency, applications on glass are particularly effective. It is also scratch-resistant, has a high level of resistance to weathering and is impervious to a wide variety of chemicals, solvents and staining agents. As such, it offers a solution as an effective anti-graffiti laminate.
A B1 fire rating further increases the application opportunities.
IMPORTANT: IP 2830-108 is not suitable for application to low surface energy substrates, such as polypropylene and polyethylene.

This special laminate is impervious to gas and moisture and, as such, it is essential that the print media is completely dry prior to application of the laminate. It must not be wet applied - i.e. dry application only.
It is not suitable for application to low surface energy substrates, such as polypropylene and polyethylene.
