The innovation submitted by Polifilm Extrusion GmbH offers fundamental innovations in film laminating technology, which will greatly benefit online printers with small and medium order sizes and short delivery times. According to the information provided, the innovative laminating system works with a co-extruded plastic layer which is activated by a corona pre-treatment (an electrical-chemical process) in fractions of a second. This not only replaces the classic drying process, but also the maturing time of at least 2 days. The system can be made much more compact and no longer deals with solvent and solvent residues. The only energy input is in the corona unit itself. This is a simplifying innovation which also means significant savings in energy and investment.
