Hot Laminating Machines

Hot Laminating Machines are probably the ones you are familiar with. Hot rolling mills work by heating an adhesive material and binding it to a surface. This is a very durable lamination method used in many different offices around the world. One of the major disadvantages of hot rolling is that the temperature of the machine can reach up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Some materials may be damaged at such high temperatures or colors may fade due to high heat. Special protective covers and special types of lamination bags can help to reduce this effect. Only certain materials should be used with a hot laminator.

Cold Laminating Machines

Cold Laminating Machines mill uses pressure and adhesive to intercalate materials between sheets of plastic film. Cold rolling mills are cheaper than hot rolling mills because they do not require a heating device. Many people find that a high quality cold rolling mill is a superior choice for their business as they are very easy to use. Articles that have a lot of ink coverage often look better when laminated with a cold laminator because the colors do not bleed.
If you want to laminate larger items such as vehicle packaging and banners, a cold rolling mill is a good option. The pressure used to laminate the elements comes from rolling elements through a set of rollers that generate a lot of pressure, ensuring that the elements come out without air bubbles or defects.
