GBC Ultima 55 Thermal Roll Laminator, 27" Maximum Width

GBC Ultima 55 Thermal Roll Laminator, 27" Maximum Width


EZ Load Film System
Educators can spend less time laminating and more time in the classroom thanks to our EZ Load film system. This laminator is color-coded to match up with the light gray and dark gray end caps on EZ Load film, ensuring rolls are loaded correctly to avoid frustrating film wraps.

The GBC Ultima 55 makes it easy to preserve your printed teaching tools. With our color-coded, EZ Load system, you can quickly switch films rolls between lessons, while the wide laminating width lets you laminate large posters and banners.
