Capabilities

Flame

Flame lamination involves exposing a piece of material to an open flame, which creates a thin layer of molten polymer on the surface. Another substrate is then brought into contact with this layer. Finally, as it cools, the two materials are compressed, enabling the surfaces to bond together.

Infrared

Similar to the flame lamination process. Infrared lamination also creates a thin layer of molten polymer on the surface of the material. This is done by exposing it to infrared radiation, and then compressing it with another piece of material. The last part of this process involves passing the material through an embossed roller to give it our signature Archbond pattern.

Hot Melt

The hot melt process, unlike flame, doesn’t rely on the material itself to act as an adhesive. Instead, a separate adhesive substance is heated up before being evenly distributed by rollers across the material. Finally, the process is completed in a similar method to flame lamination by feeding the materials through a compression roller to bond together.
