Film lamination has long been one of the most popular and cost effective methods in the packaging industry providing durability, high gloss, scuff resistance and crack prevention. As well as these advantages to the packaging quality, film lamination can also be used to enhance packaging using a range of finishes including silk, matte, soft touch, gloss and anti-scuff (for more information on print finishes click here).
A simple process bonding a thin transparent film to the surface of the press sheet or other substrate using one of two methods; thermal lamination and wet lamination.
At Saxon Packaging we are able to provide polypropylene film lamination to a range of corrugated board material in-house using our Paperplast Dry 70 Thermal Film Laminator. Thermal lamination uses 200 – 300 degree heat to meld the film and substrate, and the film we use is either 22 or 27 microns in thickness.
Film lamination can be done in conjunction with foiling (pre-lamination) and die cutting, scoring, embossing and debossing as well as several other finishes (all post lamination). Click here to find out more about available print finishes.
In addition to our in-house film lamination capabilities we are also able to offer sheet to sheet laminating, die cutting and gluing. By having the ability to carry out these processes in-house we are able to reduce lead time and costs to our customers.
