Thermal Lamination Film Q&A

Q: What is thermal lamination film?

A: Thermal lamination film is commonly used in the printing and packaging industry to protect and enhance the appearance of printed materials. It is a multi-layer film, usually composed of a base film and an adhesive layer(what EKO use is EVA). The adhesive layer is activated by heat during the lamination process, creating a strong bond between the film and the printed material.

Q: What’s the advantages of thermal lamination film?

A: 1. Protection: Thermal laminating film provides a protective layer that acts as a barrier against moisture, UV rays, scratches, and other physical damage. It helps extend the life and integrity of printed materials, making them more durable.

2.Enhanced visual appeal: Heat lamination film give printed materials a glossy or matte finish, enhancing their appearance and giving them a professional look. It can also improve the color saturation and contrast of a print design, making it more visually appealing.

3.Easy to clean: The surface of the thermal composite film is smooth and easy to clean. Any fingerprints or dirt can be wiped off without damaging the printed material underneath.

4.Versatility: Thermal laminated film can be used on various types of printed materials such as book covers, posters, packaging, labels and promotional materials. It is compatible with different printing techniques and can be applied to paper and synthetic substrates.

Q: How to use thermal lamination film?

A: Using thermal lamination film is a relatively simple process. Here are the general steps:

Prepare the printing material: Make sure the printing material is clean and free of any dust or debris.

Setting up your laminator: Follow the instructions that came with your laminator for proper setup. Adjust the temperature and speed settings according to the type of thermal lamination film you are using.

Loading Film: Place one or more rolls of hot laminating film on the laminator, making sure they are properly aligned.

Feed the printed material: Insert the printed material into the laminator, making sure it is aligned with the film.

Start the lamination process: Start the machine to start the lamination process. Heat and pressure from the machine will activate the adhesive layer, bonding the film to the printed material. Make sure the laminate comes out the other end of the machine smoothly.

Trim excess film: After lamination is complete, use a cutting tool or trimmer to trim excess film from the edges of the laminate, if necessary.
