    I still haven't been able to resolve this silvering issue. I know it's usually due to cooler laminate, but it's been up to 75 degrees in here and I still get silvering. It goes away after a couple days but it's frustrating that everything is coming out this way.

    Any suggestions on what I can look into to help this issue would be great. Thanks

  2. Slowing down the speed you laminate at can help reduce it. I just let it go away with time.

    Post heat after you mount to substrate. If you have the ability to do that depending on the substrate your mounting to.

    If it goes away after a day or two, then it is normal silvering. If you want to laminate with zero silvering, you have to use high quality vinyls ($$$$) and high-end laminating equipment ($$$$) with plenty of heat. Even then, some silvering can still happen.

    Thanks guys. I guess I'll just have to live with it, it's just an annoyance more than anything. I do warm it a little post-lamination to help it along.
