Laminating in Winter

Winter is here, which means temperatures are dropping and so too can your laminates adhesion.

Laminating is a temperature sensitive process, which means the ambient temperature of the stock can affect the quality of your finish. This is especially evident if you are trying to laminate at high speed.

Here are a few tips to help you get a great laminating finish all year round:

  • Where possible, try to control the climate in your production area
  • If you're unable to control the climate in your production area, running your laminator at a slightly higher temperature or slower speed may help
  • If this isn't an option, placing a blow heater near your stock prior to laminating may assist in achieving a high quality finish
  • For 'cold' laminating, set your heat assist laminator to 25-40 degrees to take the chill off your film
