Series 3220 Slip-Resistant

Premium Cast Overlaminate

Series 3220 overlaminates are constructed of 50 microns cast vinyl film with clear, permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive. Designed to protect and prolong the life of printed images, Series 3220 extends the life of the graphics by 2 years.

Series 3220 is rated for outdoor durability up to 7 years.

This product is not designed to be used as an optically clear window film.

Actual weathering durability depends on surface preparation, surface maintenance and exposure conditions. Successful weather resistance is characterized by the retention of legibility.

Series 3220 will resist weathering best when applied to vertical or upper outboard angles. Horizontal angles, such as hood and auto roof surfaces, will deteriorate more quickly than vertical. This is due to increased exposure to sun and moisture, as well as continued high deposition of dirt and atmospheric contaminants. Arlon does not recommend its film for horizontal or close horizontal applications. For best practice on laminating to UV inks, see Tip 55: What is Silvering?


Series 3220 Gloss is approved under the European Standard Certification EN 14041 for slip-resistance as a floor graphic material for indoor dry conditions. Arlon recommends DPF 8000™ Ultra Tack, DPF 8200 High Tack and DPF 4600GLX/MLX as the compatible media. These product combinations are recommended for short term
interior floor applications, for an expected life of up to 6 months. To determine the best product for the application Arlon always recommends testing on the surface before using the above products. Product performance can vary greatly depending on the surface type, level of foot traffic, elemental exposure, the carpet type, and floor condition.
Due to these variables, Arlon is unable to offer a warranty for the performance, expected life, or clean removability of these products for floor graphic applications. See Arlon’s Standard Limited Warranty, which is available at
