    Looks like slivering to me. Increase pressure (within reason) and slow your speed down. If you have heat assist turn it on before lamination.

    My shop is in Toronto - when the cold weather comes around we need to let our lam sit for a day to temperate adjust after delivery. The cold from the un-heated delivery trucks would cause this slivering in the lam adhesive quite aggressively if we didn’t.

    I get this often on rolls of ij180 laminated with 8519. I then let it sit overnight before plotting, and all of the bubbles disappear. Even more odd, the first 5-10' of laminate have no bubbles.

    Silvering doesn't need anything done. It goes away on its own. It is the result of cool temperatures.

    :thankyou: Gino - that song has been going through my head since I read this thread title this morning. Now that I've listened to it, it's gone!

    I've had inspector gadget stuck in my head for a solid 2 months. I even started whistling it for about 1/2 the day. Guess we all need a habit

    Buy some cigarettes. )))) ))

    Anyway, bigk...... why are you upset at my post ?? Seriously, I thought the title, along with the players fit right into your question and your name/avatar. Besides, it's kinda basic knowledge that silvering goes away with time from 20 minutes to a few hours. So, may I give your OP a thumbs down ??
