What is a self-adhesive product made of?

A self-adhesive product is a laminate made of four layers:

• a surface media
(PVC, paper, textile etc...)

• self-adhesive

(also called pressure-sensitive adhesive)

• silicone

• backing paper

To apply self-adhesive films/graphics, the laminate must be removed from the protective siliconized backing paper by the applicator.

Printed graphics are most often protected by a clear self-adhesive protective film. This film is used to protect the graphics from dust, scratches, grease and even graffiti. Protective films can also be used to change the look of the finish (matt, satin, glossy and textured), prevent light reflection and make images last longer by protecting them from UV rays.
