Innovative Lamination Goes Beyond Protection

For over 160 years, Marabu has been recognized for its high-quality liquid coating products and environmental awareness. Keeping with the highest industry standards, their line of clear coatings is a premium grade, high-performance line of liquid laminates that are less expensive than films and pass the test of time enduring harsh environments.

Protecting Your Investment

Liquid laminates are used for applications where a film wouldn’t be flexible enough or where a film would hide the texture of the substrate, such as canvas, vinyl, wallcoverings, fine art, jump castles or inflatables, and more. It’s also used in fleet graphics, where the cost per square foot is an important factor. These Marabu laminates can be applied using an automated liquid laminator, like the StarLam 1600R Liquid Laminator, spray gun, or a more manual hand roller process.
