The Benefits of Adhesives and Sealants
The development of new materials with diverse applications puts additional challenges on processing technology. This is particularly so when different materials have to be joined to make components which retain their individual beneficial properties in the composite product.
This raises the question: which joining technique is able to join these different materials in such a way that their specific properties are retained? Traditional joining techniques have well-known disadvantages. With thermal techniques such as welding, the specific properties of the material alter within the heat-affected zone. Mechanical techniques such as riveting or the use of screws in their turn only allow force transfer at points; in addition, it is necessary to drill holes in the work pieces that are being joined, and this “damages” and hence weakens the materials. In contrast, it is anticipated that bonding technology will assume an ever more important role in industry and the handicraft sector in the future.
