    I doubt you will find one of these easily. I looked for some time…

    Drytac used to do them years ago but stopped a good while back.

    I would be interested to hear others views on sourcing one but the only way I have been able to do it is buying in from the likes of china etc and I don’t want a machine with zero or Chinese only support and supplies.

    blimey they went out of fashion 20 + years ago when solvent got going, obviously you have a use for one, some suppliers still sell roll on liquid laminate might be a way forward or chat to old established suppliers that sell a lot of Aquarius printer stuff. clive turner from papergraphics may know more.

    Yes I know they are not popular, mainly because the clean up has got to be meticulous, that’s why film laminators are more widely used.

    I have a particular job that would suit this method of lamination, so I’m just seeing what’s out there

    There are still lots of these available. but in our industry, they are extremely limited in the UK and as I say, the support, if any, is going to be tedious if in a different time window and language.

    I know several companies that use these in the UK today and they are used specifically for large volume work where savings have to be made to compete.
