Selecting the right laminate thickness

Lamination services are a great way to give a wide variety of products a protective layer. From timber for flooring or furniture, to plastics for bicycle helmets, menus and important documents, you can laminate a huge array of different things. The process is quick and can provide a high quality smooth or matte finish depending on your needs.

One of the most important things to think about when you choose laminate is the thickness. The thicker the protective layer the more rigid it will be but the higher the protection. If it is important that the finished product remains flexible you may want to choose a thinner laminate. Alternatively if rigidity is not a problem or is required you can select a thicker material.

A great thing to keep in mind is you can attain different results by changing both the thickness of the laminate and the substrate material. If rigidity is required an alternative to a thicker laminate is to increase the thickness of the material itself and continue using a thinner top layer. For example you could use a durable card rather than paper. The results can be better and you can save money too.
