Laminated Composite Materials
Laminated composite is a material that has had several distinct materials laminated together. The different material layers can be laminated together through adhesives, heat, pressure, or ultrasonic bonding.
Coated Composite Materials
A coated material is another type of composite material. A coated material is composed of a material (i.e. nonwoven) that has had some form of liquid material applied to its surface, on one or both sides, and allowed to dry. There are a variety of reasons coatings are applied to materials, including changing the aesthetic or surface texture and waterproofing the material.
Tape Composite Materials
A tape is a composite consisting of a flexible base material (ex: film, nonwoven, foam) that is coated on one or both sides with an adhesive. If the adhesive is pressure sensitive, the composite can either be self-wound or have release liners.
