Advanced Laminating Process
If you are new to flexible packaging, we can guide you through every stage of the packaging process from the very moment you make contact to the moment you receive a pallet of finished goods.
Please see a quick overview of the gravure printing process that is used at SLS Packaging Solutions to produce millions of gravure printed packaging every year:
What is the Laminating Process?
Laminating is the process through which two or more flexible packaging webs are joined together using a bonding agent. The substrates making up the webs may consist of films, papers, or aluminum foils. In general terms an adhesive is applied to the less absorbent substrate web, after which the second web is pressed against it to produce a duplex, or two-layer, laminate.
Web laminating is used to improve the appearance and barrier properties of substrates.
The choice of the most suitable web laminating process is mainly dictated by the end-use of the product. A number of different technologies are available that cover the wide variety of applications in the food and non-food packaging industries, as well as for the manufacture of technical laminates.
