A method for producing laminated materials is taught, wherein materials are bonded by heating using radio frequency (RF) energy while simultaneously applying pressure. The process for laminating a single piece is generally completed in a matter of seconds, as opposed to the hour(s) required to produce a glass laminate using the current state-of-the-art technology.
