Laminate

To build up a rigid surface over a framework by applying layers of material, adhering them to each other. Laminating is a technique used in sculpture with wood or resin. Plywood is a laminated product, the wood grain going in a different direction with each layer, in order to add strength. Corrugated cardboard and foam core (or foam board) are other laminated materials. Lamination is also a process of reinforcing fragile old paper, usually with thin, translucent or transparent sheets.
