In-line lamination is a tern used to describe the application of a clear plastic film to the top and/or bottom of a base material creating a multi-layered product that is done on a continuous web. In in-line laminating operations, adhesives are applied to the web by the last printing station of a press, before being combined with a second web to form the multi-layered product. Laminates are typically composed of different plastic films layered over other plastic films, paper, and/or aluminum foil. The finished laminations can be used for a variety of end-use applications, although food packaging consumes the largest portion of these laminations.
