If you are shopping around for a laminator, you may have noticed that there are two primary methods used for laminating documents and pictures. These two methods are cold and hot lamination. Both laminating techniques have their benefits, but which style of laminator should you use?
Each of these laminating styles has unique features that make them ideal for certain laminating jobs. I’ll explain the differences between the two.
Cold lamination is often referred to as pressure lamination. That is because cold laminating film has a tacky adhesive on one side that sticks to documents when pressure is applied, much like scotch tape. This laminating method is popular for making stickers, arts & crafts and for laminating temperature sensitive documents.
This laminating method uses laminating rolls that are coated on one side with thermally activated glue. Once heat is applied, the glue melts, much like a hot glue gun. Heat, along with pressure, coats the laminating film to documents, pictures and more. This laminating style is extremely common for laminating photos, signs, posters, banners, business cards, restaurant menus and much more.
