The process of bonding two or more layers of material together, using heat, pressure, and an adhesive.
A method of gluing strips of thin clear wood to the lengthwise surfaces of finger-jointed material to provide the appearance of clear stock.
An alternative to wood carving, in which boards of wood are glued together in specific shapes or designs. Because the artist can glue different size boards together, and then refine the shape, less wood actually goes to waste then in the carving process. The technique was developed because blocks of wood became too expensive for artists to consider wasting so much of the valuable wood in the carving process.
The operation of combining two or more sheets of paper with an adhesive (paper/aluminium; paper/paper; paper/aluminium/poly.) for the purpose moisture or grease resistance or other qualities.
The bonding of layers of foam and/or other materials together into a single composite. This may be accomplished through adhesives or through heat processes like flame lamination.
Bonding two or more sheetings together by heat.
A process which combines two or more plies of material with a strong bond, usually durable even when wet. For a much weaker bond, one of the ply bonding processes is used. Most premium consumer paper towels sold in the US are made with a process that combines laminating with embossing in a single unit. This is often called double-nip embossing laminating, and has several variations: nested, pin-to-pin, or random registration. Each variation requires two separate embossing operations (double-nip) that run in parallel, an adhesive applicator that places small amounts of glue on the tips of the raised elements of the paper while it is still in contact with one of the embossing rollers, a laminating area between the two embossing rollers (that may be either a closed nip or an open nip) where the plies are brought back together again, and a marrying nip (or shoe) where pressure is applied to make the adhesive bond stronger.
Bonding two or more sheets of paper together.
Bonding, usually with adhesives, of metal sheet or strip alloys to various substrates, including aluminum, plywood and steel. The resulting product is often very strong.
A method of bonding layers of foam together in a simple composite. Laminating could be attained with adhesives or with heat processes, such as flame lamination.
Is a process of bonding a plastic film by heat, wet glue or pressure sensitive adhesive to a sheet of paper to protect the print. Laminates can also be used to provide a printed sheet with a textured finish for mouse mats or no-slip surfaces required for floor products. A wide range of laminates and various thicknesses are available including: Polyester (PET) film provides excellent scuff and scratch resistance and can be found on such items as presentation folders; Polypropylene (OPP) is the clearest and brightest of films with excellent folding capabilities. It is a cost effective alternative to PET but is not as durable; Nylon is a durable product with excellent scuff and scratch resistance and is the film of choice for most book manufacturers due to its curl free capabilities; Specialty films can be used to add a unique look to your finished product or to add specific features such as UV resistance or increased slip.
Laminating is the process of fusing pieces of glass through the application of clear or colored adhesives.
Similar to capping, where part of the tablet is not bonding together, but the tablet separates where the cup or land meets the band edge, or separates in the band area.
Bonding together two or more layers of materials.
A process in which materials with differing properties are layered and bonded to each other to achieve greater strength, lower heat transfer and better sound absorption.
Mechanical process of building a laminate by bonding repeated laminations, or layers, of material onto one another. If the layers have a grain, such as in wood, they are often bonded with their grains at different angles to achieve greater strength in the finished material.
A technique of bonding layers of leather together under pressure for strength, thickness or visual effect. The process whereby two or more layers of fabric, felt or paper pulps are pressed or glued together to make a stronger, one-layer piece.
