Laminating film is made up of two layers which are heat activated and serves as the “glue” to bond the flm to the product being laminated. Once heated, small amounts of the “glue” side can stick to the heat shoes and rollers and must be periodically cleaned from the laminator. Laminating film is available in a variety of different lengths, and thicknesses.

The Laminex Minikote G3 Laminator is designed to use 1.5 mil or 3 mil laminating film. Buy our GBC compliant roll lamination film online.

Care and Cleaning the Minikote G3

In the normal course of operating the Minikote G3, dirt and adhesive will accumulate on the heat shoes and rubber rollers (Laminating produces static electricity which attracts airborne dust and dirt). Regular inspection and cleaning will assure that this does not become a problem.

Never use hard, sharp, or abrasive items to clean the heat shoes. The shoes are coated with a non-stick surface that could easily be damaged. Likewise, do not use sharp metallic objects or steel wool to clean the rubber rollers. Any scratches, indentations, or marks left on the rollers will appear on the laminated product.

To clean the shoes and rollers, use a clean, lint-free cloth. Some suggested solvents are Poly-Off®, rubbing alcohol (isopropyl), fingernail polish remover (with acetone), and Goof-Off® spray.

Removing a “Wrap-Around”

A “wrap-around” occurs if the film exiting the rear rollers curls around one of them causing the laminate to wind around the roller. If the wrap-around is not severe, simply use the reverse feature and back the film out.

Make sure to remove the Feed Table before reversing the machine! For extreme wrap-arounds (i.e. when plastic and/or product have wrapped around the rubber rollers several times) follow this procedure:

  1. Shut the machine off!
  2. The Minikote G3 has set screws at both ends of each laminating and pull roller. With the use of a 3/32 hex key, loosen all four set screws on the pull rollers.
  3. Cut the plastic between the laminating and pull rollers, grab the loose end and pull. The rollers will rotate freely on the roll shafts and the “wrap-around” will easily unwrap.
  4. Tighten all the set screws and rethread the film.
