Why is it important to use an overlaminate for floor graphics?

Although there are a variety of floor graphic media types that do not require overlaminates, however most standard vinyl require lamination to be suitable for floors. Using overlaminates provides protection against scuffing, abrasion, moisture, and UV light. This important protective layer will seal the graphic, making it suitable for heavy foot traffic. Overlaminates also make the image pop and add depth to the graphic.

These overlaminates are specifically engineered for use with pressure-sensitive floor graphic films and meet or exceed various public safety requirements and industry standards for slip resistance.
