Lamination

Processing technologies

Lamination of a wide range of supporting materials

 

A classic lamination is carried out either as adhesive lamination or flame lamination. Two components are pressed together by means of an adhesive during the adhesive lamination process, whereas in the course of flame lamination the joining is executed with the help of inflamed foam material


Application fields of lamination:

Laminations can be carried out with many different supporting materials, for example:

  • Fabrics, textures, textiles
  • Knitwear
  • Textile fabrics
  • Foams
  • Non-woven (microfibre) fabrics
  • Films
  • Metal foils
  • Three-dimensional textiles
  • Leatherette
  • and many more…

 

Different fields of application

Our laminated supporting materials are available as end products in a wide range of applications, for example:

  • Seat covers
  • Back shelves
  • Roof liners
  • Headrests
  • Armrests
  • Door side panels
  • Anti-slip equipment
  • Upholstery fabrics
  • Acoustic solutions
  • Insulations

 



Lamination – Flame lamination compound

 

Flame lamination refers to joining (two) materials by heating foam, which acts as an adhesive. The thickness of the foam between two components is selectable between 1.6 to 14 millimeters. This type of lamination is generally used in the automobile industry, e.g. for car seats, which leads to more pleasant seating comfort by using paddings. Depending on the desired end product, we process various types of foam and we always strive for the best solution in direct dialogue with our customers.

 

Workflow description of flame lamination

We join a maximum of three different components (upper layer, foam, lower layer), the foam being melted as an adhesive and placed between the two components to be joined. Following this, the entire piece is pressed via a rotating system.

 

We are also able to join only one supporting material with foam to achieve more pleasant comfort.

 



Lamination – Adhesive lamination compound

Adhesive lamination is carried out without using foam. An upper layer and a non-woven facric are joined by means of adhesives (hotmelt). By using special adhesives we are able to join almost all kinds of supporting materials, thus increasing the range of applications for our customers significantly.

 

Workflow description of adhesive lamination

In the course of adhesive lamination, a precisely defined amount of adhesive is applied by a rotating system between the two components. Subsequently, the components are joined by being pressed together.
