    3M cast laminates (eg. 8518) are pretty thin... 2 mil (0.05mm).
    Not sure of other options. It's the thinnest we print on.

    Depends on the laminate. Certain types are designated "digitally printable".
    We've printed on 3M cast laminates for ~7 years without problems.
    Not sure about Oracal though, no experience with it yet.

    Oracal 290 gloss laminate. Great results with eco-sol

    Thanks, but that one is too thick... I need something thinner than 2 mil.

    best printable solvent clear vinyl would be 3m 180 mc 114
    its basically the same as the 180cv3 but clear. so control tac and air channel.
    2mil. but i don't think there is any other vinyl out there with 180 characteristics and clear.

    Why the need for thinner than 2mil? If you have to have that thin look at Avery 1300 series or 8418 for 1.3mil thickness.
