Tech Query: Will laminating a mobile phone damage it?

Dr. Aditya Manekar



Ques. Does laminating a mobile phone damage it due to the heat produced during the process? Is the effect more with touch screen phones?

Ans. Any form of high heat applied to a mobile phone is harmful, it can melt plastic surfaces. To be on the safer side opt for cold lamination or better get a screenguard/scratch guard for your touchscreen, that should suffice. Also completely laminating your mobile might block vent holes and may heat up your phone during use. Overheating is a leading cause for electronic components' failure.
