Composite Materials - Laminar Composites

vessel direction provides layers

Platelets or lamina have two long dimensions. Laminar composites include plywood, which is a laminated composite of thin layers of wood in which successive layers have different grain or fiber orientations. The result is a more-or-less isotropic composite sheet that is weaker in any direction than it would be if the fibers were all aligned in one direction. The stainless steel in a cooking vessel with a copper-clad bottom provides corrosion resistance while the copper provides better heat distribution over the base of the vessel.
