Q: I recently came across a label that had a 3D Dome len appearance. Can you explain what material this is and what types of environments it can be used in?
A: Based on your description, it sounds like you’re talking about a domed decal. The 3D effect actually comes from pouring a clear, automotive grade, polyurethane resin onto a nameplate or label and then cured to form a protective “lens” over the identification product. This process can be used on a wide variety of materials including various metals, polycarbonate, polyester, vinyl and mylar.
Benefits of domed decals include:
Protects against harsh environments including sun, heat, cold, rain, and saltwater
Chemical, detergent and moisture resistant
Resists fading and will not discolor
Scratch resistant, self-healing property
Withstands temperature ranges from -50°F to 250°F
Some of the applications our customers use domed labels on include:
