Lamination

Celloglas offer a lamination service which adds protection and decoration to printed media.

A wide range of options are available, offering enhancement to printed materials such as book or magazine covers, packaging, menus, business cards or other printed matter.

Lamination is a plastic film which is applied to printed sheets adding typically a matt, gloss or silk finish. Celloglas also offers an ever-growing range of innovative laminates which present other benefits. Cellotouch offers a soft touch, Cellogreen is an environmental alternative and Linen has a linen texture.

Gloss Lamination

Gloss OPP (oriented polypropylene) lamination provides a wide range of uses across a whole spectrum of printed products. The properties of good gloss and strength and the advantages of low cost make it suitable for all the following applications:

Company reports and accounts, Brochures, Catalogues, Carrier Bags, Greetings Cards, Book Jacket Covers, Magazines, Maps, Labels, Point-of-Sale and Displays.

The standard film thickness is 12 micron. Film can be laminated over apertures to create a window.

Matt Lamination

This matt OPP finish coupled with its smooth texture offers a premium-effect protective layer for printed materials. Matt lamination is often combined with foil blocking or spot gloss varnish to create a contrasting effect. Matt laminates can be prone to scuffing and should be handled with care.

Silk Lamination

This polypropylene film appears midway between gloss and matt OPP film lamination and imparts a smooth natural finish to brochures and book covers, giving excellent clarity to the underlying print. Like matt OPP, the surface can be prone to surface scuffing and should be handled with care.

Cellogreen

To support clients with environmental commitments in line with Government targets, Celloglas has developed an over-lamination film product that offers all the benefits of OPP but is sustainable, biodegradable and can be recycled.

Cellogreen is made from highly refined wood pulp sourced from SFI managed forests. Cellogreen has the same appearance as OPP lamination but can be recycled in a normal re-pulping system. The Cellogreen logo can be printed on items to help identify the product during waste sorting and to explain the environmental credentials to end-users.

Cellogreen is available with a gloss, matt, or silk effect.  Matt and silk Cellogreen is prone to surface scuffing and should be handled with care.

Cellotouch

Cellotouch lamination is a protective finish with a matt effect and a soft texture. Cellotouch is a matt BOPP laminating (Bi-axially Oriented Polypropylene) film that has a patented coating that produces a sensuous, high-quality, tactile surface. Cellotouch can be applied to both sides of a sheet and offers good anti-scuff properties.

Cellotouch is also known as soft-touch lamination. Ask for our soft peach cover sample to feel this soft laminate for yourself. Cellotouch is commonly combined with foil blocking or gloss varnish and it is also compatible with a number of other screen applied or high-speed coating finishes.
