A laminate is the combination of at least two layers of the same or different materials, which can be connected for example through adhesion.

Laminates made of different materials are used in the electro motor construction and in the transformer manufacture. Mainly special papers like pressboards or aramid papers are adhered with films like polyester films or polyimide films.

Different adhesive systems, e.g. polyurethane adhesive, are used for the manufacture of laminates.
