SOLUTIONS: LAMINATING MULTIPLE MATERIALS — truly customized products

 

Improve Strength/Stability/Appearance and Protect

Every liner, adhesive, and film has individual properties and characteristics. When the “ideal” product doesn’t exist, lamination — building customized products from layers of materials — may be the answer.

A converter can engineer custom materials to fit a customer’s unique needs. These custom materials can offer properties not previously available with stock materials.

  • TECHNIQUES TO COMBINE MATERIALS

    Strouse uses pressure, heat, and welding techniques to combine multiple materials. We have the ability to combine 10 materials on numerous presses, and even more materials can be combined on specialized presses. At Strouse, we perform these laminations:

    • Multi-layer lamination
    • Extended liner lamination
    • Zoned adhesive lamination
    • Liner substitution
    • Island Placement

  • LAMINATION USES

    • Solutions that require a stack-up that is different than stock. This can be needed for both material density and different materials.
    • A converter can save money by creating a laminated material that eliminates steps in the process. For example, laminating in line while die cutting, all in one pass.
    • A bonding application that needs different adhesives to bond to different surface energy substrates. The two different adhesives are laminated together.
