Services of operative polygraphy: lamination of documents
Laminating documents is aA special coating procedure designed to protect printing products from various types of damage. This technology protects the paper from deliberate or accidental spoilage and significantly extends its service life, providing security and initial appearance for an extended period of time. In addition, the lamination of documents at times improves readability from paper-type media, and also gives additional color saturation to the images. Most often, they cover the identity cards, book covers, cards, calendars and other items that risk being torn, dented or flooded because of their frequent use.
To date, the most common laminationpaper is used for advertising purposes, because it allows you to create reliable and high-quality advertising media in a short time and practically from improvised materials. Particularly relevant is the procedure for applying a protective coating for quickly wearing products, for example, for business cards and promotional brochures. If necessary, you can also perform laminating photos, diplomas, travel cards and similar documents.
The coating procedure itself is divided into a rolland batch. The latter is the most convenient and simple way for laminating single sheets of paper. The film used in this technology can be of a very different format and type - both matte and glossy. If necessary, to laminate a postcard, a card, a gift certificate and any other personal documents, in a salon engaged in operational printing, it will be done in a batch method in just ten to fifteen minutes. The roll-up lamination of documents can be hot and cold. Hot coating technology is one of the most common and used in printing techniques. Lamination in this case is made on special installations, usual (up to A4) or industrial format (up to A0). The equipment is not characterized by a complex control system and is prepared for work in just a couple of minutes, which allows print shops to work quickly with large runs. Cold lamination is a relatively new procedure, only gaining popularity.
Over a long period of time, the processcoating was limited in use because it was performed exclusively at high temperatures and high pressures, which could not be successfully handled by any paper and paints. The problem was solved with the invention of the technology of cold lamination, which allowed to cover non-resistant printing products and any synthetic materials.
Order lamination of documents for one or anothertechnology is available today in virtually any salon of operational printing. The total cost will depend on the application technology, the thickness of the film used, the use of special effects, the necessary circulation and the paper size.
