Laminating: Press Laminating

FRIMO Press Laminating


For sophisticated decorative materials

Press laminating is mainly used to process materials that are unsuitable for vacuum processes, such as textiles, materials with and without foam backings or non-stretchable cover materials like leather or Alcantara. Processing these materials requires high quality tooling and machinery to ensure the quality of the grain, the soft touch and the color remain intact. The decorative element and the substrate are usually laminated together by being pressed between two hard instruments. Precise decor positioning and tool arrangements ensure optimal laminating conditions.

Other forms of laminating include leather laminating and membrane laminating, which combines press laminating, edge folding, trimming.
