German term or phrase: Lamellos
In brochure describing fitting of kitchen countertops made of special slab: "Die Montage erfolgt wie bei einer blichen Spanplatte mit Plattenverbindern, Lamellos und Silikon" - not a spelling mistake. Is it lamella in English or the adj. lamellose meaning thin layers?!? Or something else? Appreciate help!

laminating strips


Explanation:
I think they mean the strips that are usually delivered with chipboard counters for finishing the cut sides. "Lamella" is usually a membrane, often with strictly biological overtones.

lamellos


Explanation:
Lamellos = Ovalplättchen, Flachholzdübel

Holz fachgerecht verbinden
Eine spezielle Verbindung ist die Verwendung von Lamellos (Flachholzdübel), die in kreissegmentförmige Nuten eingeleimt werden. Dazu benötigen Sie eine Schlitzfräse. Der Vorteil bei dieser Methode ist, daß Sie die Werkstücke anpassen können. (http://www.heimwerkerlexikon.de/lexikon/flachholzduebel.htm)
