The technique is called "lamination". Its advantage resides at the enhancement of the posters by a traditional and economic support, perfectly rigid, intended for a use in interior (external use is completely excluded).
Description of the lamination of a poster:
1. Joining of the poster by a hot (high temperature) or cold process, with an adhesive doubles face, on a standard wooden support medium (MDF, composite panel carried out with disintegrated particles of wood, agglomerated with adhesive) (possible choices: fire-resistant, damp-proof, tinted in the mass) of 10 mm of thickness (weight of 8 kg by square meter)
2. Application of a transparent film anti-UV (matte, shining, gloss, anti-scratch, fabric effect, slate or Velleda) by hot transfer,
3. Peripheral machining of the plate with a machine specialized in bevel then
4. Hot transfer, of a colored film (color to be chosen according to the poster). Caution: the work of the side can more or less cut down 3 mm on the periphery of the poster.
5. Fixing by hook at the back of the plate.
6. Packing under shrinkable film with polystyrene corners at the four angles or under bubble plastic.
Usual dimensions are from 10 x 15 cm up to 120 x 270 cm. For larger dimensions, after 7.500 square centimeters, there is a risk of bending. To avoid that, the panel is reinforced at the back with different techniques.
