In very large or complex composite parts, it is often necessary to make a complete ply layer out of two or more pieces of material. When two or more pieces are used to form a ply layer, the pieces must be positioned so that they will bond together during curing to form a continuous layer in the finished part. The area where these pieces are joined together is called a splice.
