The term technical laminates is used for various multilayer and multi-component materials with specific electrical insulation, thermal, mechanical and machining properties.

Materials vary by type of bonding resin (phenolic, epoxy, melamine and silicone) and by reinforcement material (paper, cotton and glass fabrics), and thus in terms of properties and usability. The characteristics of industrial laminates are good dielectric strength, electrical insulation resistance with relatively low volume, temperature stability, good acoustic and mechanical damping of sound and vibrations. They can be turned, milled, drilled and cut, they have low absorption of water, they do not need maintenance, they do not corrode. Various chemical additives further improve the individual properties of materials. For certain technological solutions, there are excellent compensations for wood, metals and other plastic materials.

Because of these properties, industrial laminates are irreplaceable in electronics and electrical engineering, and are also useful in heavy industry, machine building, aviation, automotive, textile industry and in many other industries.
