Lamination and Its Types

By Webinfiniteit Subscribe to RSS | February 21st 2012 | Views:

We all know what “Lamination” is, however, can we define it? Can we explain the entire process of lamination in words? Certainly not, most of us can’t do that, but don’t worry, here we’ll explain you each and everything about lamination.

Truthfully, lamination is all about covering an object with a plastic layer, usually with a glue or adhesive. But in the office

environment, there are basically 3 forms of lamination accepted:-

•Printed pouch lamination

•Printed roll lamination

•Hot & Cold Roll Lamination

Mainly, this lamination is intended to beautify the printed works. Perhaps that is why we see coffee packing pouches and most of the packing stuffs laminated. Also, we get printed laminated rolls in the market. But in case, if you’re a manufacturer, you ought to decide what sort of laminator you require? The laminator you’ll choose will primarily depend on the nature of your product and of course on your budget.

Pouch Laminators

The very first laminators are your “Pouch laminators.” These are inexpensive in nature and very popular in the office environment. If we specifically talk about the sizes, then these laminators come in the following sizes:-

•Paper A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, and A7

•Credit Card size (54x86mm)


•ID card size (60x90mm)

•Key Card size 64x99mm


•65x95mm, and


Here, the thickness of the pouch is measured in microns (1 micron = 1/1000th of an inch)

Generally, there are 5 thickness levels out of which you can chose as per your requirements.






Thinner pouches are of course can’t bear high range of temperature, thus, it is advisable that you go for thicker pouches. If you see, Tea packing pouch got thick lamination as it is intended to preserve coffee for a longer time.

Usually, laminated pouches are available in matt and glossy finish. However, gloss finish preferred by the manufacturers as it’s clear, clean, glittering and ideal for printed laminated pouches.

Heated Roll Laminators

These are mainly used in industries and factories. Thus, you can imagine the bulk usage of it. This laminator is used for large format prints. These laminators are available in large rolls and meant for quick lamination.

Cold Roll Laminators

As the name suggests, there is zero usage of heat in this process of lamination. Instead, with air pressure the lamination is usually done. This technique is mainly used when lamination is required on those products which might get damaged with heat.

So now, you know what all options you’ve in hand. All you ought to do is to select the correct one in accordance with your requirements.
