Film lamination

Film lamination is a thin foil coating which helps to protect the product (e.g. a book) from dirt and traces of use.

Common types of film lamination are:

  • Wet lamination
    A viscous adhesive is applied to the film, which is then pressed onto the material under pressure and heat. The solvent in the adhesive evaporates.
  • Thermal lamination
    The film is already coated with a thermoactive adhesive that reacts to heat and liquefies.

Film lamination can also be used as a design element to enhance the product with a special look (gold, silver, mother-of-pearl, gloss, matt) or feel (silky, smooth, etc.).
