The XyronPRO XM1255 laminating machine ispressure sensitive, meaning that it doesn't use heat to seel lamination, just high-ressure rollers. Also called a cold laminator, it is compatible with the Xyron XM1255 Refills, which come in a variety of finishes and options including just adhesive, two side laminate and more. This cold laminator will allow for pressure sensitive lamination up to 11 ¾" wide. With this Xyron laminator, you don't need any heat or electricity to achieve a clear lamination; all you have to do is insert your item into the feed opening and rotate the hand crank to pull it through the machine. This applies even pressure from start to finish, for a consistent and professional finish. Because the XM1255 only uses pressure, there are no smells, mess or warm-up time to deal with; it is ready to go immediately, and runs at speeds dependent on the operator. The lack of heat also means it will work well for heat-sensitive and fragile items.
