At LSS we have over 30 years experience of laminating and encapsulating. We offer trade prices and are open to both trade and general public.  

What Is Encapsulation?

Encapsulation is mostly used for protecting a document providing durability. The film or pouches will be larger than the sheet of paper, which, if roll film will need trimming to leave a 3 – 5 mm of plastic overlap of visible edging or if pouches they will be slightly larger than the size of the document required but also giving a visible edge. The document in both cases will be water tight and therefore suitable for outdoor use and to provide protection to the paper is important, such as menus, information posters in hospitals and other community areas.

The film used in this process is polyester and is often quite thick, ranging from 75 mic to 250 mic.

There are four different weights/thicknesses of encapsulating film to choose from:

– 42 Microns per side (1.5 Thou)
– 75 Microns per side (3 Thou)
– 125 Microns per side (5 Thou)
– 250 Microns per side (10 Thou)

These films are available in Gloss and Standard Matt finishes
