What is a Roll Laminator?

Are you laminating a high volume of documents? Will they range in size and shape? A roll laminator is probably your best choice. Versatile and speedy, roll laminators handle everything from individual tags to large banners with continuously moving, smooth roller action.

How Do They Work?

With roll laminators, two rolls of laminating film are loaded into the machine—one on top, one on bottom. The laminator feeds your documents between the two rolls. Then, it uses heat and/or pressure to form a lasting seal. Once the seal is made, you can trim the excess film—and you’re done. 

Choosing a Roll Laminator

The machine you choose comes down to a few factors, including:

  • the size of the documents you’re laminating
  • the size of the space where the laminator will be placed
  • and more.

When heated on a hot roll laminator, the adhesive on the thermal roll film becomes sticky. This creates a strong seal and professional finish,help protect from moisture, dirt and everyday impact.

Pressure-Sensitive Laminating Film Chevron Icon

Not sure you want to mess with a hot laminator? You can still laminate with GBC pressure-sensitive film. During the lamination process, a release liner is slowly pulled away from the film, which uses pressure – not heat – to seal your document.
