Adhesive Bonding is a general term including different processes that offer useful and important alternatives to welding and mechanical fastening as joining methods when required.
In particular one should acquaint oneself with advantages and limitations to verify the suitability of Adhesive Bonding for prospected applications.
Some of these aspects were addressed in our page on Adhesive Bonding which considers also its applicability to joining of metals to composite materials or ceramics.
It is therefore quite important to be exposed to most of the available information on Adhesive Bonding to evaluate alternatives, advantages, limitations and costs.
Please find here our new Mid Month Bulletin that we offer with the purpose of providing useful online information easily accessible to our readers, either now or at some later date.
No claims of completeness of knowledge are advanced. Readers willing to suggest additional information that they know and peruse successfully, can send a note by e-mail, using the Contact Us form.
