Re: Durable LDPE Resin product- Need to seal

Part of the problem is that Polyethylene plastics ( the PE part of LDPE ) are what you use when you do not want things to " stick " . That is why they can be hard to print to ( numbers wear of quickly etc. )
That limits you to what you can use as a sealer .
Also you need a coating that is " soft " enough for the rotary cutter to bite .

In NO way do I recommend doing this ( do not think the results would be worth it , even if you could make it work ) , but you could try flowing on a coating of Envirotex .

Once again , do not think the results would be worth it at all !

Ok, thanks. I guess I will just nix the idea all together and just pray that I have better luck with my mat than some of the reviewers

Try calling a decal making shop for some clear plastic they use in decals. Ask them for x feet, and x inches wide. It'll probably cost you $5-10 bucks. It's tough stuff as well.
