WHAT IS OPP FILM LAMINATION?
OPP film lamination is the process of applying a thin film of oriented polypropylene to different materials via a film lamination machine. When it comes to office and marketing materials, this is a common way to protect them from wear and tear and enrich them with a distinctive look and feel.
OPP or oriented polypropylene is a durable polymer material that offers good barrier properties and clarity. Among other applications, its qualities make OPP film a great choice for laminating menus, leaflets, book covers, business cards, and other similar items that need to be both resistant to fatigue and stylish.
Types of OPP Film Lamination
At NEPS, we offer different types of lamination finishes that result in a different look and feel, so you can choose the film lamination process that best suits your needs.
Gloss Lamination - Provides a high shine and glare surface. This lamination is often used on menus and other printed materials that need to be durable but also clear and easy to read.
Silk Lamination - Offers the same protective features as gloss lamination while providing a silky smooth finish. If you are looking to give your printed materials all the protection they need along with a soft-to-the-touch feel, silk or matte lamination is probably the way to go.
Suede Lamination - Also referred to as velvet or soft touch film lamination, this finish is often used for business cards, book covers, and high-end product packaging. It offers a luxury feel and look and is the go-to option for those who want to make a lasting first impression.
Whichever film lamination you decide on, you can choose between single or double-sided lamination film options. Of course, if you aren’t sure which type of lamination is right for you, feel free to reach out to us and we’ll do our best to inform you on all their differences and help you decide.
