Formulation Strategies for Multi-Substrate Bonding

Recorded Course

Recorded on Apr 3, 2019

Design promising bonding solutions for dissimilar substrates in creative new structures or parts with tailored properties (light-weight vehicles to new-age electronics...)

Edward Petrie will share material selection tips, formulation strategies, joint designs and processing requirements to control thermal expansion coefficient, reduce internal shrinkage, extend service temperature range… to design flexible yet tough structural adhesives for multi-substrate bonding.

Why should you view this course?

Consumer & industrial products (automotive, medical, electronics…) are witnessing advances in technology to decrease weight, improve performance, and reduce cost. And consequently, the adhesive industry is faced with problems of optimally bonding multi-substrates & reducing internal stress levels. But, lack of knowledge on the materials, properties, formulations, processing, joint designs, etc. leads to early product failure & eventual customer dissatisfaction. Time is precious so make smarter choices ! Join the Live Course to:

  • Gain knowledge of the unique requirements of dissimilar joints

  • Understand the types of adhesives & formulations (epoxies, vinyl copolymers, acrylic, urethane) for flexible yet tough multi-substrate bonds

  • Enhance your know-how on processing techniques & joint designs that are most successful

  • Improve your understanding of emerging technologies in the industries (automotive, medical, electronics…)

  • Avoid early product failure & meet today’s consumer/ industrial requirements (decrease weight, improve performance, and reduce cost)
Formulation Strategies for Multi-Substrate Bonding
