Building & Construction - Part V Non-structural Applications and Durability Less Than 20 Years: On-site Applied Adhesives

SpecialChem / Philippe Cognard – Dec 17, 2003

In the previous parts we have studied the various types of adhesives which are used in Construction, and their technical characteristics. In this last section we will review all the applications or end uses of bonding in Construction and civil engineering. There is now many bonding operations in Construction: * some are classical ones such as bonding of decorative materials: floor and wall coverings, installation of tiles,… which utilize standard thermoplastic adhesives or mortars, and because the decorative materials are changed every 10 years, these adhesives are designed to last some 10 to 20 years, they are applied on site, generally by hand. * others are newer, often structural applications which have been possible only with high performances adhesives, and these applications require long lasting adhesives, ie that should last up to 50 years or during the whole life of the building, and adhesives which should often resist to weathering, outside exposure to water, sunlight, and other aggressions.
