When you need to protect your documents from overhandling, tears, and spills, there’s no better way to do so than by using a pouch laminator. These devices are terrific for a variety of environments including the home, the office, and schools, but you should know a bit about them before investing in one. That said, here’s an article that’s all about pouch laminators. There’s even a brief tutorial on how to use one of them. Let’s get started….
Hot and cold lamination. Pouch laminators are thermal devices that heat up to melt the adhesive in sheaths which are known as laminating pouches. Hot lamination is good for most items, but there are times when you might need to use a cold device. Cold lamination is best for items like ink-jet printouts and photographs because these items can be easily damaged by heat. If you plan on regularly working with these materials, select a machine with a cold setting so you can laminate them using self-adhesive pouches.
