A sheet of paper adhered to one or more other plies of either paper sheets, paper board, plastic film or metal foil. Laminated paper is stronger and thicker than a single ply of paper. The adhesive for paper laminates may be either a water solution of glue, casein or starch or a thermoplastic wax or resin (American Paper Institute, 1980)
