laminated
Explanation:
GDT gives this definition under the heading 'ceramics', which is very similar, I should think to glass processing.

Check out the following descriptions and sites:


Laminated glass consists of a tough plastic interlayer made of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) bonded together between two panes of glass under heat and pressure. Once sealed together, the glass "sandwich" behaves as a single unit and looks like normal glass. Annealed, heat strengthened or tempered glass can be used to produce laminated glass. Similar to the glass in car windshields, laminated glass may crack upon impact, but the glass fragments tend to adhere to the plastic interlayer rather than falling free and potentially causing injury.
