yes G10 can be laminated IF you remove the outer layer of mold release ( a
waxy substance ) with either a good dose of acetone and 180 grit sandpaper or
a good deal of elbow brease and 120 grit paper...
use either a good 30 minute epoxy or fiberglass resin to bond the plates
together... as far as pressure .. use a good sized pot full of water of
several weights tha amount to 10 - 20 lbs ...
with the rpms that you have in mind and the size of electrodes try at
least 3 layers ( 2 min ) for about 3/8" to 1/2 " total thickness
