What are A4 laminating pouches & sheets? What are the advantages?

First of all, we must point out that it is not the laminating sheets & pouches, but the purpose of the laminate or press is to create a protective layer on the card. Laminators pouches come in a variety of sizes, with small sizes for office use and large sizes for industrial use. Laminating pouches are a device that sticks a thin layer of PVC through the heat under and on the poster, and thus the poster becomes resistant to water, tearing, folding and becomes completely washable and its life is extended.

After digital printing, it is laminated, which is done for the beauty of printing and protection. Some advantages of using a laminator:

  • Prevent card wrinkles

  • Prevent staining

  • Sun protection

  • Prevent black card

  • Color fading or fat printing

  • Avoid leaving fingerprints

A4 Laminating pouches & sheets is primarily a useful way to preserve important documents. These usually include things like:

  • Important reports

  • certificates

  • Checklists and safety instructions

  • ID and business card

  • Restaurant menus

  • Picture

  • Posters and signs

In fact, many other types of documents can be laminated, but it is important to use a laminator to protect the documents. The laminate generally involves gluing and pressing a plastic cover to printed paper, and its main purpose is to extend the life of printing and documents. Laminating pouches also increases color contrast. The plastic coating that the laminator creates on the print provides a clean, transparent surface that is suitable for marking using cleaning magic.

Types of laminators sheets & A3 Laminating pouches

If you have never shot one you owe it to yourself to give it a try. You can find the device you need from hot and cold laminate as well as a bag or film roll. In this article, the different types of this device are clearly explained to help you make more informed decisions.

Hot pouch laminates

Pouch Laminating is a laminating machine that uses temperature. These machines use temperature to melt and glue the laminate bag to the card or document. This makes the laminated card water resistant and impermeable to oil and petroleum products. The pouch laminator helps maintain the color and writing status of the card and in some sources.

Cold pouch laminates

Cold laminating Pouch is the best option for laminating heat-sensitive documents, which includes faxes, photos and documents printed with an ink jet printer. Cold laminates are safer and provide better UV protection than hot laminates. Cold laminated bags use pressure-activated adhesives, which are easy and safe to use because they do not get hot.

Cold roll laminators

Cold roll laminators and cold bag laminators do not use heat to laminate the work. The film on such laminates is pressure-sensitive, meaning that the film has a viscous surface that adheres to and fuses in contact with the printed work surface. This method is very suitable for laminating printed products that are damaged by heat; Examples include heat-melted wax-based inks or heat-sensitive printing products that use pressure-sensitive adhesives, such as vinyl or other fast-melting plastics.

Cold laminator, as its name implies, uses only pressure to attach a sticky plastic film to the desired print, and most of them are used for short-term and small projects.

A4 or A3 Hot roll laminating pouches

These types of laminators use one or two large laminating pouches or rolls of film. One side of the pouches has an adhesive that activates when exposed to heat. This adhesive sticks to the work when the print job passes through the laminator. When the work is printed using a digital process, the degree of adhesion of the laminate film depends on the type of media as well as the adhesion force between the thermal layer and the composite layer.

ILM-LS laminator, which is used to extend the life of an ID card, personal card, as well as security after printing on a personal card, smart card. Existing devices can be used in two ways. The hologram films used in the thermal laminating machines create the impression of depth on the card. A 2D image that appears to be 3D. 

Hologram printing is still one of the best ways to create security, and it is very difficult to print and forge it, and it is easy to detect counterfeits with the naked eye. Also, the effect of increasing the durability of the card should not be ignored. With the opaque or transparent hologram, a layer of resistance is added to the card. Also, these modules can be easily combined with other devices and you can have safe and durable cards with a suitable budget.
