Protect your labels from harmful UV rays!

Designed to reduce color fading caused by harmful UV light and protect the underlying media and image. This product is optimal for indoor and outdoor durable label applications such as bumper stickers, decals and nameplate decoration.

The combined UV components of our solution should realistically provide 3-5 years of outdoor protection.*



Wondering how your labels stand up to UV rays? Our in-house lab is equipped with a state-of-the-art QUV chamber that is available to test your products. Send us samples and we’re happy to provide you with the results.

Contact your sales representative today for more information and to request a sample.

*Image fade can also be negatively impacted by the type of ink used, saturation levels, substrate, etc. as well as environmental factors of industrial pollutants, oxygen, heat and water.
