Adhesives Bundle PD281744

Topics: Manufacturing and Materials Adhesives and sealants , Materials properties , Joining


Manufacturers increasingly rely on adhesives to assemble a variety of products, such as cars, computers, furniture, and toys. An adhesive is a substance used to join two or more materials. Adhesive bonding is the process of placing an adhesive between two surfaces, or substrates, and allowing it to harden, or cure. Structural adhesives are most commonly used in adhesive bonding, since they can easily withstand heavy loads. Epoxies, anaerobics, acrylics, silicones, urethanes, and cyanoacrylates are commonly used structural adhesives.

These courses explain the fundamental concepts of adhesive bonding as they apply to product assembly. The course content first addresses adhesive properties, basic concepts of the adhesive bonding process, and types of adhesives. Intermediate-level courses explain surface preparation methods as well as basic steps for applying an adhesive to a surface.
