Adhesion theory

SpecialChem / Jan 1, 2008


In contrast to traditional joining methods such as riveting & screwing, bonding has no adverse effect on the material characteristics of the surfaces to be bonded; e.g.: drilling of holes in the joined parts, damaging and weakening them.

In the manufacturing environment, bonding technology permits characteristic material properties to be utilized to the utmost. Below is a summary of advantages of bonding technology:

  • Separation of surfaces
  • Easy integration into automated production processes
  • Bonding of different materials
  • Prevention of crevice corrosion
  • Bonding of heat-sensitive materials
  • Weight-saving
  • Bonding of materials over large areas
  • Uniform distribution of tension in bonded areas
  • High vibration damping
  • Low-heat joining processes
  • Enabling of recycling of primary materials
  • In the Adhesion Guide pages, SpecialChem offers you a rundown on adhesion, the basic principles, mechanisms and types of adhesives in order to facilitate you in finding the best suitable polymer base for your adhesive.
