Compositions and methods for manufacturing composite laminate structures incorporating sheets having a moldable matrix are disclosed. Suitable compositions are prepared by mixing together a water dispersable organic binder, water, and appropriate additives (such as aggregates and fibers) which impart predetermined properties so that a sheet formed therefrom has the desired performance criteria. The compositions are formed into sheets by first extruding them into a sheet and then calendaring the sheet using a set of rollers. The calendered sheets are dried in an accelerated manner to form a substantially hardened sheet. The drying process is performed by heated rollers and/or a drying chamber. The inorganically filled sheets so formed may have properties substantially similar to sheets made from presently used materials like paper, cardboard, polystyrene, or plastic. Such sheets can be rolled, pressed, scored, perforated, folded, and glued before or after being incorporated into composite laminate structures. Such composite laminate structures have especial utility in the mass production of containers, particularly food and beverage containers.
