How to bond laminate to plywood

Here is another question asked by a member of the public relating to adhesives. We hope that it and the answer which we include below are useful.

I’d like to bond laminate to birch plywood to manufacture shower panels. What adhesive would you recommend?

Here’s our response:

The problem you will have here is making sure that steam from the shower does not come into contact with the plywood. For laminating you could use Sprayable Contact Adhesive but all exposed parts must be sealed. Is the birch plywood weaterproof? If not you may wish to consider marine ply or similar.
