Paper and Paperboard Lamination
Sierra Coating Technologies LLC offers expert paper laminating services, including product development, contract manufacturing and private labeling, to paper mills, commercial printers and packaging customers nationwide.
Sierra® provides comprehensive lamination solutions using highly specialized machinery including three coater/laminators. Two coaters are equipped with flotation dryers and can perform laminations before or after the drying oven process. Our third coating line applies hot melt adhesive coating.
With our wide web laminators and coaters we can accommodate paper rolls up to 62 inches wide. We can also process laminated paper and paperboards to achieve calipers up to 40 point board. Our two-zone flotation drying method and superior automation system allows Sierra to coat and laminate your substrates quickly and cost-effectively. We work diligently to ensure that every product leaves our facility meeting or exceeding your industry's toughest standards and specifications.
To achieve your desired finished product properties, we can laminate using the same substrates, or duplex laminate different or multiple substrates. By carefully choosing substrates, we can produce materials that give printers, packagers and converters a competitive advantage for their customers.
Sierra meticulously selects adhesives for wet or dry laminating of finished roll goods. We apply chemical coatings and adhesives from the industry's top manufacturers for each lamination project.
With extensive experience in toll manufacturing of custom laminations, as well as our highly-specialized machinery, Sierra will help develop and private label your products to the highest standards in the industry. By understanding our clients' needs, we are known as a steady, reliable and highly flexible partner for paper and paperboard laminating services.
Sierra's advantages and capabilities include:
- Water-based, solvent-less or hot melt adhesives
- Coating add-ons with optimized coating weights and optimal run speeds
- Cover stock: glue matches base papers without inducing blistering or curl
- Wide range material capacity from 27 inches to 62 inches wide
Color and Black Adhesives
For extra security and opacity, Sierra can add colors and black to standard adhesives. Permanent adhesives are fully dried to create a bond that causes fiber tear if unwanted separation is attempted. These are ideal for:
- Indoor retail signs, aisle banners and game cards: black coloring in the adhesive prevents print show-through.
- Ticket stock: colored glue adds security against counterfeiting.
