Building & Construction Adhesives - Part I General Information and Rules

SpecialChem / Philippe Cognard – Aug 6, 2003

Construction ( of housings, plants, shops... ) and civil engineering are the largest markets for adhesives, in tons and also in euros, because large surfaces and thick joints are involved. In the past, bonding and sealing of traditional construction materials was done with cement, plaster and natural adhesives for ceramic tiles, erection of walls and decoration materials. But since world war 2 many new construction materials have been developed such as plastics, plasterboard panels, insulation foams, wood based panels ( particle board... ) and many new synthetic raw materials for decoration, and all these materials needed new adhesives in order to display a good adhesion to these new materials, improved performances and easier application techniques. In order to allow more people to get comfortable new housing, the cost of construction needed to be reduced through the use of prefabricated parts, and we will study in details the manufacturing of these parts , which requires fast setting adhesives in order to fit to the lines speeds.
