The Aerospace Industry - Feeding Ground for Structural Adhesive Development

Edward M. Petrie – Aug 20, 2012

This editorial reviews the history of structural adhesive growth in the aerospace industry and identifies unique areas of development. Adhesives have always played a significant role in the aircraft / aerospace industry primarily because they offer a low weight, fatigue resistant, and aerodynamically sound method of assembly. Adhesive bonding is also less labor and cost intensive when applied to large structures such as those commonly utilized in the aerospace industry. Structural adhesives, especially, account for the greatest market share of all the adhesives used in aerospace applications.
