What is the difference between hot and cold lamination?

By June 17 , 2016

Hot Lamination –

  • Hot lamination is the most common lamination method used and is generally preferred over cold lamination.
  • Hot lamination uses heat- activated adhesive which is heated when passed through the laminator.
  • The disadvantage is that some items that have to be laminated get damaged under the influence of heat.

Cold Lamination –

  • Cold lamination method is fast, safe on most products, easy to use and does not involve the use of heat.
  • Cold lamination uses a pressure sensitive adhesive which induces pressure on the item to be laminated when passed through the laminator.
