U.S. Nameplate Co. uses the laminating process to add value and performance characteristics to your nameplates, overlays, decals, and control panels.

Lamination uses adhesive and pressure to combine two dissimilar materials, adding a layer of protection, a unique product characteristic, or adhesives. Overlaminate is a thin layer of clear plastic film, and can be applied to the printed surface of a safety label or decal, which protects the graphics. Adhesives can be added to the back-side, specifically chosen for the intended application surface. Sub-surface printed graphics on a clear substrate can have an adhesive layer applied to the printing, making a low-cost, but extremely durable plastic safety label or decal.

About Laminating

Lamination is a technique of manufacturing a product in multiple layers, so that the composite product achieves improved strength or has an enhanced appearance or characteristic, or includes a specific performance characteristic. A laminate is usually permanently affixed by heat, pressure, or adhesives. Laminating is used to add temporary or permanent protective films to the surface of our products, adhesives to the backside, or to join a variety of materials together. Unique features such as glow-in-the-dark phosphorescence can be added to products using lamination.
