    We stick at 40 degrees which am pretty sure is what Omar told us to do.. but reading your post am now seconded guessing and thinking I miss heard.

    It does get rid of the slivering or sivering or whatever it is. Those tiny micro bubbles that settle if it’s cold anyway after a day or a few hours

    I’d have thought 60 would be more than enough.

    Too hot and there’s a chance you may stretch or distort the vinyl or laminate causing issues down the line.

    Until recently we had a cold laminator no issues, we occasionally use a bit of heat on the new Mounters Mate.

    Thinking about it, is the hotter temperature not for encapsulation?
