Lamination and aqueous coating


Well-known member
Is there a laminating person who can clear this up for me?

I have been told by several binders and laminating shops that hot lamination over aqueous coating is not going to give a dependably good lamination job. Rather, they say it is better to not use aqueous coating at all.

We prefer to use aqueous coating to avoid set-off, to keep the paper from "cooking" from overheating, and to keep press speeds up. (A side benefit is to get the job through the shop faster.)

Is there a way to use aqueous coating and still get good results laminating?

Hello davarino,

I would defer to the Laminators, they know more than you, so you can carry on "Cooking and Overheating" Regards, Alois
