Lamination is an important process used to manufacture a material out of multiple layers. When these layers are joined together, the resulting composite combines the qualities of its parts. These different layers are combined into a laminate by means of heat, pressure, adhesive, or welding. The various process or processes used depend entirely on the materials that are being put together. Once the layers are joined, the laminate is permanently assembled and very stable.
This process can improve several physical characteristics, such as:
- Aesthetic appearance
- Sound insulation
Additional properties can be targeted with custom laminates as well.
The Benefits of Lamination
Lamination offers a range of benefits, such as:
- Durability. A laminate is made to be stronger than any one of its parts. This gives laminated products protection against wear, such as scratches, staining, and tearing.
- Aesthetics. Lamination also improves the look of products. Colors are bright, designs stay sharp and eye-catching, and a glossy finish makes printed materials look high-end and more professional. When printed products are laminated, they are more likely to catch the attention of customers.
- Longevity. Another advantage of lamination is longevity. The protective surface of the laminate helps it to stand up to all kinds of wear, such as exposure to the weather, or friction from motion. Products that are often handled, such as educational materials, are much more resistant to wear when they are laminated. Posters or signs are protected from harsh environments.
