Polymernoun

(organic chemistry) A long or larger molecule consisting of a chain or network of many repeating units, formed by chemically bonding together many identical or similar small molecules called monomers. A polymer is formed by polymerization, the joining of many monomer molecules.

Laminateverb

To assemble from thin sheets glued together.

Polymernoun

A material consisting of such polymer molecules.

Laminateverb

To cover something flat, usually paper, in adhesive protective plastic.

Polymernoun

Any one of two or more substances related to each other by polymerism; specifically, a substance produced from another substance by chemical polymerization.

Laminateverb

To form, as metal, into a thin plate, as by rolling.

Polymernoun

a naturally occurring or synthetic compound consisting of large molecules made up of a linked series of repeated simple monomers

Laminateverb

To cause to separate into thin plates or layers; to divide into thin plates.

Polymer

A polymer (; Greek poly-, + -mer, ) is a substance or material consisting of very large molecules, or macromolecules, composed of many repeating subunits. Due to their broad spectrum of properties, both synthetic and natural polymers play essential and ubiquitous roles in everyday life.

‘many’; ‘part’;

Laminatenoun

Material formed of thin sheets glued together.

Laminateadjective

Consisting of, or covered with, laminae, or thin plates, scales, or layers, one over another; laminated.

Laminateadjective

Consisting of, or covered with, laminæ, or thin plates, scales, or layers, one over another; laminated.

Laminateverb

To cause to separate into thin plates or layers; to divide into thin plates.

Laminateverb

To form, as metal, into a thin plate, as by rolling.

Laminateverb

To form by uniting two or more layers (in sheet form) of a material, so that the layers are bonded tightly.

Laminateverb

To unite (layers in sheet form) by bonding, so as to create a single object with multiple layers; - used with the material in sheet form as the object; as, to laminate plywood.

Laminateverb
