Replacement 27″ Rolls of Lamination Film – Machine Compatibility List

Monday, February 11th, 2013

27" Wide Roll Lamination FilmIf you own a laminator and are looking for some replacement lamination film (found here), you may be wondering if the film you are finding is going to work with your machine. At ABC Office, we offer a great selection of affordable film, so I have taken each of our 27″ wide roll laminators and have created a list that shows which machine is compatible with our standard 27″ wide film. This list will help you find compatible roll lamination film.

The most common type of 27″ roll lamination film we offer is what’s known as thermal lamination film, meaning the glue is activated by heat. This film has a glossy finish and is totally clear when laminated. We offer our 27″ wide roll film in 1.5, 3, 5 and 10 mil thicknesses. The length of the film depends on the thickness of the film. Our 1.5 mil film is 500 feet long, where our 10 mil film is 100 feet long. The higher the mil thickness, the thicker the film. One mil equals 0.001″.

I will begin by listing our 27″ wide 1.5 mil thick film that has a 1″ core and will go up from there. Remember, I am only covering the 27″ wide film in this article. Also be aware that most 27″ laminators can use smaller width rolls.

One thing you may notice as you look through this list is that there are far fewer roll laminators capable of handling the thicker 5 and 10 mil film. If you have a 27″ wide thermal roll laminator with a 1″ core, you can more than likely use all of the 1″ core film found on this page. You can find our entire selection of 27″ wide roll laminators here. If you are unsure, or have additional questions about compatibility with your laminator, please feel free to call us at 1-800-658-8788. We would love to help you out.

Most Popular Roll Lamination Film Widths and Core Diameters

Roll Lamination FilmIf you own a roll laminator and need to keep it up and running, you are going to need to roll lamination film. Roll laminators use two separate rolls of film. One is used to coat the bottom of the document and the other is used to coat the top of the document. Combined, the finished results look great and can be used with posters, signs, banners, maps and much more. So what are the most common roll widths, core diameters and thicknesses used today?

Roll laminators come in dozens of different sizes, however, the most common width is 27″, followed by 25″. These sizes of roll laminators are popular because they are affordable, can be used to laminate posters as well as multiple letter-size documents. You will find both 27″ and 25″ roll laminators in schools, churches, copy centers and businesses.

Roll Laminating FilmBeing that 27″ laminators are extremely popular, most people looking for roll film need it in a 27″ width. The 27″ width is by far the most common and popular size with customers. This film comes with 1″ and 2 ¼” core sizes. The core is what slides onto the laminator’s mandrel. The mandrel is the metallic bar that the roll film slides onto. The 1″ core size is by far the most common size.

Now that we have determined the width an core size, what is the most common roll film thickness? While film comes in 1.5, 3, 5, 7 and 10 mil thicknesses, the 3 mil thickness is the most popular. This is because 3 mils (3 thousandths of an inch) is accepted on most laminators. Thicker 5, 7 and 10 mil sizes require laminators that are a bit more robust and capable of heating up the thicker film.

Most Popular Roll Laminator Film Specifications

  • Roll Width: 27″
  • Roll Core Diameter: 1″
  • Roll Laminator Thickness: 3 mils
