Why should you view this course?

In recent years, 95% of materials from scrapped vehicles have been reused / recycled (European ELV directive), while more and more multi-materials are used... In case of bonded assemblies, the main roadblock is the lack of reversibility for end of life or maintenance & repair.

Meet the needs of circular economy with debonding-on-command structural adhesives by grasping existing technologies, it's future trends, and requirements to ensure durability of debondable adhesives!

  1. Get a clear overview of existing debonding-on-demand technologies & future trends

  2. Understand specific requirements of debondable adhesives

  3. Identify advantages-drawback of each technology/debonding strategy

  4. Understand the interest of debondable adhesive in respect to waste regulations

  5. Implement successful eco-design strategy based on bonding assembly
