    Choosing the Right Structural Adhesive For Your Application



    ACCESS RECORDED SESSION

    How do you know which structural adhesive is right for your application? Join 3M Application Engineers Dennis Ngo and Eric Nyaribo for an overview of the different classes of structural adhesives, the key differences and how to choose the right adhesive for your application. This presentation will touch on factors that are important for successful implementation of structural adhesives use, including surface preparation and eventual use and service conditions of the final product as well as:


    • Types of structural adhesives
    • Performance and process characteristics
    • Substrates and joint designs
    • Application equipment

    FEA as a tool for Structural Adhesive Joint Design



    ACCESS RECORDED SESSION

    As structural adhesives bond more critical applications, evaluating performance through digital modeling has become essential. Models can calculate stresses and strains, enable rapid joint optimization and identify stress concentrations where failure may occur – but adhesives exhibit complex mechanical behaviors under different loading conditions. Join 3M Application Engineers Joey Benson and Eric Nyaribo to learn more about FEA. Topics will include:


    • What is FEA modeling?
    • Where/why is it used?
    • Typical testing 3M does to create data cards
    • Types of material modeling
    • FEA data cards
