Bonding/Gluing Composites:

  • composite-webinar


    Composites require new methods of bonding or joining (beyond traditional mechanical and thermal methods) to allow for design and performance optimisation. Fortunately, advances in structural adhesives (such as epoxies, acrylics, and urethanes) have enabled designers to create products meeting structural integrity requirements without the use of mechanical fasteners, rivets, or welding.

    Additionally, these structural adhesives work well with multiple substrates including plastics, metals, and composites without sacrificing performance properties. Even Low Surface Energy (LSE) plastics, such as thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), polypropylene (PP), and polyethylene (e.g. HDPE), which in the past had to be mechanically attached or heat welded, can now be bonded with specialty structural adhesives.
