Lamination is the process by which paper or another carrier material and a protective film, the so-called laminate, are joined together. The lamination requires a laminator and a special laminating film.
- Laminating ensures permanent finishing & sealing.
- Protection against water and abrasion.
Type of Laminators
An A3 laminator is especially useful in environments where large print materials, such as posters or signage, need to be protected and embellished for display. A3 and larger format laminators are often of the thermal film variety, either single or double-sided, as these tend to offer greater flexibility in terms of item orientation, workpiece size and operating temperature. They’re ideal for producing sealed and protected documents for public display, such as window dressings, public signage or exhibition graphics.
A4 laminators are by far the most common format found in the majority of homes, offices, schools and retail environments. They’re particularly widely used for producing report covers, multiple IDS or business cards, photo montages, checklists or instruction guides, wipe-clean rotas, menus and other reusable documents that need to stay looking presentable even in constant handling.
Most A4 desktop laminators tend to be the pouch variety and rely on heated rollers to seal purpose-bought adhesive plastic wallets around the documents in question. More economical varieties usually incorporate a single pair of rollers that pass the paperwork through the laminating machine, while higher-end versions might feature multiple sets of rollers to ensure a cleaner finish with greatly reduced risk of bubbling or misalignment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can lamination be removed from a document?
Scissors can be a reliable source when it comes to taking off any lamination job. If the lamination extends further past the edge of the paper, you can use scissors to take it off. Start by making a slit in the lamination and peel the edges off from the paper you were working on.
What is the lamination method?
Lamination is a processing approach to producing a composite system with improved strength, stability and appearance by using two or more materials stacked in multiple layers. Wide ranges of materials are known to laminate to each other, and the process is continued until the laminate has the desired properties.
