What advantages do thermal lamination films offer for print finishing?


The primary advantage of a thermal lamination film is the strength and protection is gives to the laminated print surface. The alternative is a coating for the print, called a "varnish" which does not have the strength, abrasion resistance and such. Thermal lamination gives flexibility, abrasion resistance, water resistance, solvent resistance, and scratch resistance. KDX thermal lamination films also comply with current FDA regulations regarding direct food contact, and are in compliance with the CPSIA standards for children's books and toys. Some coatings, such as UV cured overprint varnishes do not comply.
