Adhesives Used in Automotive Production 710106

This paper details five types of adhesives used in the automotive industry: evaporation or diffusion, chemically reactive, pressure sensitive, hot melts, and sealants. The adhesives included in each group are listed, along with their properties. The author feels that adhesives offer the best method of joining because of their ability to supply a uniform distribution of stresses, an air and water tight seal, vibration and sound dampening, protection from galvanic corrosion, fatigue resistance, along with the ability to join widely dissimilar materials.
Eight tables summarize the various types of adhesive and their uses, bases, applications, and special properties.
