Adhesive bonding is a low-heat joining technique and capable of joining virtually all technically usable materials together in a two-dimensional manner. The bond created by an adhesive is built up very gently, since the bonding process requires neither high heat – as with welding or soldering – nor structurally weakening holes – as with riveting or screwing. Since the bond is usually applied over a large area, it also ensures a relatively uniform stress distribution in the component.
Using a clearly structured 5-step management system, this book provides detailed instructions for the steps required to set up a stable process for producing a safe and high-quality bonded component. The focus is on the treatment of the material surfaces to be bonded, the selection of suitable adhesives, the dimensioning of the bond, and the process steps for metering/mixing and curing the adhesives.
The user is thus presented with sustainable materials as well as modern bonding processes. Here, the special focus is on the suitable methods for surface treatment of the substrates, the adhesives to be used and the processing methods to be employed relevant for the manufacture of bonded components in industry and trade.
