What is Foil Laminating?
Foil laminating is a manufacturing process that bonds a metal foil to another material. Oftentimes the second material is a polymer based film. The foil lamination process utilizes a laminating machine that has the capabilities to coat adhesives and combine multiple substrates. The most common foil laminating process starts with a roll of aluminum foil, which goes through an adhesive coating step. Then a second material bonds to the coated foil, creating a foil laminate. There are various coating technologies used in laminating machines. Adhesives can be coated utilizing gravure coating, extrusion coating, and hot melt coating.
