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.
