Multi-layer laminating is the technique/process of combining multiple material layers to achieve additional properties unavailable in differing materials. Many converted components require the lamination of two or more materials. The purpose of material lamination is to improve the overall performance and durability of the final product by enhancing its properties, such as strength, stiffness, and durability. Additionally, material lamination provides other benefits including improved resistance to wear, corrosion, and impact.
The most common laminating service involves utilization of pressure-sensitive adhesive onto another substrate, adding a protective film, adding a carrier film, or laminating two materials by using pressure and heat. PLITEK® can laminate pressure sensitive adhesives with substrates ranging from films to foams. Laminated materials can be supplied in roll form, sheet form, or as precision die cut components.
Utilizing our state-of-the-art equipment, we work collaboratively and confidentially with our customers through all stages of their product life cycle from product development and prototyping to high volume production and fulfillment. Multi-layer laminating can be combined with other converting processes such as slitting, rotary die cutting, and pouching in one multi-station process.
