Hot laminators are the most common types of laminators. They
use heat (220 to 300 degrees F) to apply the lamination.
Hot laminators provide a better quality lamination that
is more resistant to wear and tear. This is the preferred
method of lamination for materials that are not effected by heat.
Cold laminators use pressure sensitive adhesives to
bind the lamination film when the material being laminated
is sensitive to heat. Certain inks in standard ink jet
printers are known to have the ink melt in the machine.
There are other types of printers that use heat sensitive
paper. For these types of applications the cold
laminator is the best choice.
