Film Lamination is a long term 'core' process at ACA. There is an ongoing customer demand for the product and visual impact which this process has to offer. 

Key features

  • Gloss finish
  • Matt finish
  • Silk finish

Certain companies enter this market on a tight budget and choose Thermal Lamination even with all its drawbacks. ACA however have always believed that Wet Adhesive Lamination offers more flexibility and a consistently higher finish even on much lighter paper stock. We at ACA use Billhofer Laminating equipment and have a long term relationship with this world class manufacturer who offer superb technical backup. 

Gloss Finish - High transparency, good dimensional stability, excellent slip, high resistance to water and oil greases, etc. High resistance to scratching and creasing 

Matt Finish - Excellent matt surface finish, easy to process high resistance to folding and tearing. Giving superior performance in printing varnishing and foil blocking 

Silk Finish - This relatively new film appears midway between gloss and matt film and in parts a smooth natural finish to brochures, books and covers etc. giving excellent clarity to the underlying print, scratch and scuff resistance superior to that of matt film
