Hot and Cold Laminating
HOT LAMINATINGIs the most common type of laminating. It is used to laminate documents and other flat items. The heat melts an adhesive in the plastic laminate, which sticks to the material being laminated. Hot lamination can be used with any flat items that do not include inks or materials that will run or melt when exposed to high temperatures.
COLD LAMINATINGIs your best option when laminating heat-sensitive documents. These would include faxes, photos, and documents printed with an ink jet printer. Cold lamination can be safer and provide better UV protection than hot lamination.
