How Does Binding Film Work?
On a basic level, the process of applying binding film to these materials mimics that of simple lamination. There is a specialized piece of equipment used, called a thermal laminator. And the base layer of binding film is activated by exposure to heat. So the book components or marketing materials are run through the machine along with a thin layer of film. The thermal laminator activates the heat sensitive adhesive on the base film so it fully adheres to the sheet. Then the material is cooled into place so the plastic and sheet are melded together.
