Press Products announced that it will represent GMP’s product line in South Africa. GMP holds 110 domestic and international patents and is known as one of the largest laminating machine and supply manufacturers worldwide.

Partnering with a dynamic company like GMP, Press Products can offer customers the highest quality laminating machines and film with shorter lead times and solid and reliable after sales backup.

Shaun Blumberg, Director at Press Products, attended the GMP Laminating and Digital Finishing Solutions Seminar held in Korea at the end of November 2013. Presided by Mr YP Kim, Chairman and CEO of GMP, the four day seminar saw 64 GMP agents participating from 40 overseas companies. ‘I was blown away by the high level of technology at the seminar and the market developments that GMP are driving. I have the utmost confidence in GMP as both a company and a brand and am excited to bring top quality Laminating Machines and Film at very competitive prices to our customers.’

The seminar got underway with a full presentation on GMP’s brand new lineup of products, followed by a tour of the facilities. Mr Kim discussed GMP’s strategy and focus for 2014. The seminar focused on a variety of aspects, however fully automatic lamination finishing solutions featured highly. With GMP’s creative ideas and technological know-how, they continue to analyse and reflect on the diversity of customer’s constant dynamic requirements and ensure that they provide the solutions to assist them.

Lamination not only protects against water, dirt, grease and grime but also enhances the colours of any print, making all printed material more striking and visually appealing. GMP’s wide range of laminating film and machinery allows Press Products to tailor the right laminating solution to a customer’s specific requirements. The machines range from affordable but reliable small office pouch laminators to large industry spec machines, with everything else in between.

GMP has the largest range of laminating films available worldwide. Using the highest quality materials, all products are coated with low-melt adhesive, using the only co-extrusion coating lines available in the laminating industry.

Co-extrusion technology is far more advanced than single die extrusion coating. It is faster, more efficient and produces technically superior products designed for the changing priorities of the laminator.

Ultrabond Laminating Film

Ultrabond Laminating Film offers superior adhesion designed for use with digitally printed material. GMP’s Ultrabond film has been approved by the world leaders in the digital print markets including HP Indigo, Xerox, Konica Minolta, Océ, Canon, Kodak, and Ricoh.

OPP Laminating Film

Standard OPP (Orientated Polypropylene) Laminating Film is ideal for use with traditional Litho and Inkjet prints. OPP Film is used to apply a single sided or double-sided laminated finish to printed material such as business cards, restaurant menus, brochures, book covers and greeting cards. It is ideal for high volume runs due to the low cost and availability of large volume rolls.
