Everything You Need to Know about Adhesive Converting

Laminating Adhesives

Posted by Sue Chambers Jan 8, 2014 2:36:00 PM

Lamination is the combination of two or more materials that function as a backing on a web or rolled good.

Foams, films, liners, and other substrates can be laminated with pressure sensitive adhesives. This is one of our many capabilities at Strouse. Laminating materials allows us to create a truly customized product. Every liner, adhesive, and film has individual properties and characteristics. Lamination can pair adhesives with different types of liners to create the exact release and stability needed for a given product.

Laminations improve strength, stability, and appearance of materials while serving as a protective barrier.

Laminations can be activated by pressure or heat. In the video below from 3M Europe they show how 3M Acrylic Foam Tape is laminated to a plastic substrate using both pressure and heat.


At Strouse we can perform the following laminations:

  • Multi-layer lamination
  • Extended liner laminating
  • Liner substitutions
  • Zoned adhesive lamination
