What Is Adhesive Laminating?
The lamination process is when a single web makes two or more independent webs. We complete this process using wax (wax lamination), melted plastic resin (extrusion lamination), or liquid adhesives (adhesive lamination). Adhesive laminating is one of our more popular types of materials we produce. And by being a trusted adhesive laminating manufacturer, we can create a material that specifically suits your needs.
Adhesive Laminating Types
There are different types of adhesive lamination that offer different benefits. Certain tasks require different laminates. Each type has its own pros and cons when it comes to the lamination of a particular material.
Below read more on these different types of adhesive lamination and see which method is right for your task.
The most utilized adhesive lamination material is called solvent-less, because the bonds that are created with solvent-less adhesives between the laminated webs are one hundred percent destruct in nearly all cases. This ultimately minimizes the risk of delamination with weak or poor bond strength. With this process, you are getting the most sturdy end-product, which in turn saves you money. Another reason solvent-less adhesive laminating is the way to go is due to its quick-drying ability. You save time, which leads to a more productive workday. On top of that, this sort of lamination is better for the environment.
Solvent-based adhesives produce Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) when manufactured. However, the emission of these VOCs pollutes the atmosphere. These dangerous fumes pose a threat to the employees exposed. Over the years, manufacturers take measures to limit the intake of these fumes. This shift is mostly due to the expanded use of solvent-less laminating processes. So be careful with this manufacturing process.
When it comes to water-based adhesive laminating, these adhesives contain water as their carrier. They are dried and their application is considered. This leaves the active resin system on the substrate to be bonded to a secondary substrate in order to make the lamination process work. A wide array of film substrates used this manufacturing process, such as foils and papers. It is a flexible sort of adhesive that finds a wide range of uses, such as food and medical packaging, as well as many sorts of industrial lamination products. Some food packaging applications include snack foods, bottle labels, and microwaveable packages.
