Tools to Make Your Document Better Protected


Often people mix up encapsulation and lamination but these are two absolutely different terms. Lamination is simply used for finishing and fine looking. We can say it primary augmentation. In primary enhancement paper does not become moister protected, moister get into paper through edges. A thin film of polypropylene is used for lamination which just improves presentation but not well for protection purpose. Lamination is used for catalogues and magazines only.

Encapsulation is something different from lamination. It is called as secondary enhancement. This coating is much better than lamination because document is better protected. Moisture protected is well known attribute for encapsulation. A thick film of polyester is used for covering and it is ideally suitable for menu cards, wedding cards, credit cards etc.

The major difference lies between encapsulation and lamination is due to film, its thickness and thinness. Using better quality films affects the quality of product. There are many kinds of encapsulating films. Stop light encapsulation film, Light crystal encapsulation film, Gloss encapsulation film and Matt encapsulation film are few kinds of it.

Pressure sensitive film is used when you require high quality print with fine colors and embossed design. Density of print’s color shows relative pressure, lighter the color lower the pressure and darker color shows more pressure. Locally manufactured films are fine to use but imported films are more trusted. However compatibility issue may occur so the film which is going to be used, must be compatible with machine otherwise desired quality will not be obtained.

To avoid compatibility issue machine and films should be bought from same place and further guide must be taken for future use. Much better that you get manual from supplier or get a short training from experienced person. Know how of these machines and usage is necessary for proper maintenance.

Importance of Lamination


image2Lots of techniques are applied in the manufacturing of materials in order to achieve efficiency and high performance. Some of the processes applied are done in order to improve strength and quality of the final product produced. Lamination is one of those manufacturing techniques which are targeted at improving the quality, strength, design and appearance of the material produced. It is a manufacturing process or technique in which films are used in manufacturing material in different layers.

Different Laminating machines exist which can be used in manufacturing materials in different layers. The addition of layers improves quality and appearance of the material. This manufacturing technique is oftentimes applied in large scale, medium and small scale techniques. The degree of the lamination depends on the machine used. However, the machine used in the lamination process also depends on the type of lamination in view. Lamination can be applied to different types of materials ranging from paper and photographs to glasses and woods.

The machine used in lamination varies in size and function. The price of the machine depends on what it is used for. The price ranges from as low as $7 dollars to as high as $5000. Before going for a given machine you must ascertain the scope of the lamination work. Of course, a machine used in laminating a paper cannot be used in laminating a car screen.

Laminating films come into play during lamination. The films used in lamination simply depend on the processes and objects involved in the lamination. Essentially, plastic layers are applied as films to create different layers in the material. Once different layers have been created, strength, quality, insulation, rigidity and stability can be ensured. Lamination can also be used to impart into a material special qualities which it does not possess hitherto. Various film types exist for lamination and you have to choose the required one for your work and process.
