    So I've used the general formulation optically clear vinyl for windows lately. I've installed it wet but after few days, the clear/no ink part was not 100% clear. It's like if the glue was fuzzing the view.

    So I'm looking for recommendations for real 100% optically clear material that will be compatible with my old HP L26500.

    Thanks. Ben

    3m 8518 is a laminate, but I've installed for other companies that have printed on it. It seemed to be more clear than the Arlon 4500G Clear we use typically, but it costs significantly more. It is also cast vs arlon's calendared.

    For permanent jobs 3M 8150.
    Short term removable - LG LP3962 is much cheaper.

    I don't think print with my L26500 would work great on a laminate. But I will ask my distributor if it work.

    Thanks for the suggestion of the 8150. I'll ask for a sample to try it out. For the LG, I don't have access to this brand here. Do you have other options?
