    Hello, has anyone printed latex on brushed aluminium SAV like 3M 1080 BR120 with good results? I want to have this effect to the printed colors

    Yes. You loose most of the brushed look.... But the colors become metallic. It's still a nice effect. I ended up printing on clear and laminating over the film and it looked the same.. I did it this way because my latex flaked off after 24 hours. I admitadely didn't setup a new media or play with it... And I've been told others got it to adhere properly, so you may be able to skip that step if you have a latex printer.


    If you have a solvent your best bet may be printing on lam and lamming ontop though.

    And if needed extra lamination to protect ink you over laminate one more time? Get three media all together?

    Yup. You could do that. It'll be a little thick... But that's not really an issue.
