The silver discs I am using are laminating with bubbles, pits or speckles. What can I do?
There are generally two different types of media available. White media is coated with a matte surface and generally laminates best. "Silver" media has a glossy white surface that looks like shiny silver when laminated. It can look fantastic but it has a tendency to show what looks like speckles, pits or bubbles on the laminated disc (See Below). This is due to the dust that can accumulates on the surface of the disc before it is laminated. This dust is present on all discs but shows more easily on Silver discs. It is possible but extremely difficult to eliminate this dust by keeping the laminating environment clean. Adjusting heat or tray speed settings will not affect this.
