    I have a project to do dasher boards at our local University ice rink. The existing graphics there are separating, (Vinyl from laminate, coming off in strips)
    What would you recommend to use for this? We use Avery MPI 1005 and 1060 laminate for our vehicle wraps, but wasn't sure about the constant cold and moister on this material in the rink. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!! Larry

    when you mean strips, as in somebody skated by with an exacto blade?

    That laminate won't be thick enough to withstand a season of abuse.

    Reverse print on clear then laminate with white. Install to back side of poly-carb panels.

    Or direct print to Komatex type material(foam PVC) then cover with poly-carb sheet.

    Or print vinyl and install to foam PVC and cover with poly-carb sheet.

    Signpost.. The lamination is separating from the vinyl, like striping wallpaper, big chunks.
