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.
