We crank the hot laminate up to over 300 degrees to make sure we get a proper seal around the paper. Adding hot laminate will make your paper waterproof, so this becomes ideal for near dishwashing or sink areas. You can have your dishwashing proceedures up on the wall behind the dishwasher in a restaurant. Not only does it create a waterproof finish, but it also creates a glossy look for your graphic. Graphic designers use this process to hold in their artwork once printed on paper because it really pulls an image together.
