Clearstar Coating Introduces StarLam Laminator
Sheetfed laminator uses water-based clearcoats
Clearstar Coating has premiered its 63- in. StarLam liquid laminator. The sheetfed laminator is able to coat the top side of vinyl, paper, canvas, and many rigid substrates with an even coating of its water-based ClearShield liquid laminate. Designed to be used over solvent-based output and pigmented inks printed on water-resistant media, ClearShield protects against UV, moisture, abrasion, chemical damage, and marring.
The StarLam can apply a coating up to 0.25-in. thick at speeds up to 7 ft/min. The laminator is easy to operate by a single operator and easy to clean up in less than 10 min, reports the company.
