Laminated and encapsulated

PLAST_1

Benefits

Both the lamination and the encapsulation protect the printed work from liquids, grease, scratches or tears with a thin layer of transparent polyester. Depending on the rigidity required, various thicknesses of protection can be applied.

The encapsulation is ideal for protecting double-sided documents that need to have body and rigidity, as well as for providing great durability to posters, cards, restaurant menus, technical data sheets, ID cards, etc.

Lamination mainly enhances and protects the finish of printed documents. It is possible to choose between matt or gloss lamination. It is used in practically all types of printed work: displays, business cards, folders, diptychs, triptychs, stickers, book covers, etc.

Lamination can be done from a minimum weight of printed paper, e.g. 170g for coated paper. It is possible to laminate on one or two sides.

Both lamination and encapsulation are applied to smooth media after printing and before any other work is done on the material such as die-cutting, selective 2D or 3D varnishing, etc. In some cases, it is possible to encapsulate, as a completion of the work.

It is important to take into account that creative papers cannot be laminated, firstly to preserve the texture and secondly because it would leave air bubbles as it is not a smooth material.

Remarks

Lamination is usually done hot at a temperature of 90º so it is possible to apply it to different types of print media to achieve a better finish. Both techniques are recommended for restaurant menus.
