Why should you view this course?

With continued adoption of difficult to bond materials (LSE plastics & composites), especially in automotive & transportation sector, one is required to design newer structural adhesives formulations to meet customer needs and achieve a good bond while adding enhanced properties (temperature resistance, flexibility...).


At this stage thermosetting acrylics offers new properties, while matching the performance of Epoxy & PU Adhesives. But the formulation principles and components can be very complex! Additionally, with limited books available on this subject, acquiring the right knowledge to successfully design new formulations is a critical challenge.


Be an Early Adopter & Capitalize on the full potential of this technology to meet your customer needs better! Join this course and:


  • Acquire a concise guide to formulating and selection of thermosetting acrylic adhesives (core chemistry, base materials, formulation principles…)

  • Meet your customer’s needs by developing new, high-performing structural adhesives that bond well to contaminated and low energy substrates (plastics, composites)

  • Stay ahead of competition as you adopt thermosetting acrylics technology to combining newer properties (improved temperature resistance, flexibility...) with performance levels of epoxy & PU adhesives

Who should view this course?

Formulators, Professionals in Technical Sales & Manufacturing, Raw Material Producers/Suppliers, and End Users working in Structural Thermosetting Acrylic Adhesive or in Epoxy and PU Adhesive Industry looking for transition in Structural Adhesives.
