ADHESIVES-MODERN TOOL OF FABRICATION 460232

THE application of high strength adhesives to the fabrication of automotive parts and assemblies is discussed here by Mr. Swayze, who covers the design, tooling, and inspection phases of the subject, the properties of adhesives, and the relative cost of chemical bonding, compared with other methods of assembly.
To benefit fully from the use of adhesives, the author reports that the parts must be designed so that loads applied to the bond are in shear or direct tension, eliminating peel and cleavage.
Freedom of design, he added, however, is permitted by the wide variety of materials that can be bonded in all sorts of combinations.
