It is true to say that « coller » is often translated by “glued” (or even “stuck”) and indeed for decks veneers it is not usual to see them being described as having been “stuck on”. However, when it comes to describing the technique, and in particular when using a vacuum technique, the term “bond” is perhaps better. You might like to consider the following. The choice is yours, but I would have gone for “vacuum bonded” or “vacuum bagged” if that is the actual technique used.
Construction : The planking on our custom teak decks is precision milled from FEQ Burma teak and is 100% vertical grain. This produces a surface of superior wearability and appearance.
Individual planks are bonded with specially formulated epoxy to okoume plywood or to fiberglass using a vacuum bag process.
Deck beams are laminated spruce. The sub-deck is 9mm mahogany plywood and the finish deck is 5/16 inch quarter sawn teak, fastened with epoxy and no screws. Interior joinery is mahogany plywood and cherry, all bonded to the hull to maximize stiffness.
(OK, so here they just say the deck is “fastened with epoxy” but you can also see that the joinery is “bonded” rather than “glued”.)
vacuum bag molding : A process in which a sheet of flexible transparent material plus bleeder cloth and release film are placed over the lay-up on the mold and sealed at the edges. A vacuum is applied between the sheet and the lay-up. The entrapped air is mechanically worked out of the lay-up and removed by the vacuum, and the part is cured with temperature, pressure, and time. Also called bag molding.
