It is normal for new laminators to have a slight smell during the first use which comes from the new element and should fade with subsequent uses..

Hot Single Sided Roll Laminating Film

Hot Roll Single Sided Laminators use one layer of film loaded onto a Roll with varying internal core sizes. The Wide Format Hot Roll Laminator uses heated rollers to melt the glue extruded onto lamination film roll, and the paper/card that is to be protected is bonded on one side under pressure by the rollers. Heated Roll Laminators can vary in size so choose the appropriate width to suit your machine. Also the films can be supplied in a variety of thicknesses, lengths and finishes. Please note that the glue is normally solid at room temperature and should be stored accordingly.
