Lamination is the technique/process of manufacturing a material in multiple layers so that the composite material achieves improved strength, stability, sound insulation, appearance, or other properties from the use of differing materials, such as plastic.

What should I look for when buying a laminator?
The key factors that you need to look at when buying a laminator are:
- Input Size. Most home laminators are designed to laminate A4-size paper.
- Warm-up and Preheat Speeds.
- Lamination Speed.
- Heat and Run Time.
- Brand Name.
- Sheets vs Pouches.
- Quick Jam Release.
- Weight and Carry Handles.
Which is better hot or cold laminator?
Hot laminators provide better quality, more durable lamination that is more resistant to wear and tear. This is the preferred method of laminating for materials that are not affected by heat.
Can lamination be removed?
Start by cutting the edges of the lamination and use the blow dryer to blow warm air onto the lamination. Once the lamination is heated and the air is pushing between the paper and plastic, the edges of the lamination will peel away from each other.
Which is better acrylic or PVC?
While acrylic laminates offer a high-end look, PVC laminates are the more economical option. They come in a variety of colours and textures, with the added advantage of higher durability. However, if budget is not a concern for you, nothing speaks class like acrylic laminates.
