Abstract : The report summarizes the findings of research on the laminating portion of a process for rapidly converting raw material to a finished product. The laminating step is unique in that the residual heat of the drying operation is used to accelerate adhesive cure. The system appears to be not only fast and simple, but flexible enough to be fitted into a continuous production system. It should be possible to use a wide variety of low- and intermediate-temperature-setting adhesives satisfactorily on a wide range of species. Additional savings should accru through the reuse of the heat of drying and the fact that it is unnecessary to surface the laminae before bonding. (Author)
