ADHESIVES, GLUES AND SEALANTS
The use of adhesive as bonding material is experiencing a boom in its use due to the advantages over other materials. Currently they are used for structural bonding materials with high security requirements; this is why the importance of being knowledgeable about the entire process of adhesive from the design phase of the union to the application of the adhesive on the real joint.
Articles in this block contain information about the complete cycle of the adhesive process, the design phase which calculates and optimizes the adhesive bonding, selection and validation of the adhesive or glue, quality management and application of adhesive to the substrates.
