Cold laminators use plastic film coated with adhesive and a glossy backing. The glossy backing doesn't stick to the adhesive and can be removed to expose the adhesive. The adhesive then sticks directly onto the item being laminated. This method is also known as cold roll lamination. It is an excellent option for high-quality lamination.
Cold lamination film is widely used in mounting photographs, posters, and maps. It helps protect them from moisture and UV damage. It also offers a glass-like finish. However, cold lamination film is generally more expensive than hot lamination film. It can be applied to printed materials using a standard laminator.
The thickness of cold lamination film is dependent on the width of the master roll used as a base. It is available in a wide range of thicknesses and widths. Some films, like polyester and vinyl, are rated for one year of outdoor exposure. After this time, they will begin to yellow. Cold lamination films are a good option for outdoor signage because they protect against scratching and UV damage.
Cold lamination films are made using pressure sensitive adhesives and can be used on many types of printed materials. They can be used for over-lamination and photo lamination, and are also useful for glass interior protection. In addition, cold lamination film can be printed directly with latex or eco-solvent machines.dpiflex.com
