Different types of Laminations are used for various applications.  Liquid Lamination provides a clear protection and helps reduce fading but does not protect as well as Film Lamination.  Film Lamination can protect better than Liquid Lam however, Film Lam can not stand up to the rigors of bending and waving if used on a banner.  Liquid lamination is best for a banner.

The difference between Cast and Calendared films:

Cast film is made from high grade materials that are highly durable, dimensionally stable and thin.  Cast films maintain their color better than Calendared films and are ideal for outdoor applications and vehicle wraps that require stretching over compound curves.

Calendared films are stiffer and thicker providing easier handling.  It is less expensive than cast and performs very well on short term applications on simple flat surfaces.  It is less dimensionally stable, less durable. and conformable than cast.

ICL Imaging does recommend OverLaminating with a UV Laminate to provide protection and to decrease fading over time. Laminates are available in Matte, Glossy, and Lustre as well as embossed.
