Adhesive Selection and Screening Testing

  • James T. Rice

Abstract

Selecting a proper adhesive for a given bonding application can, at times, appear to be an overwhelming task, but it need not be. The purpose of this chapter is to help in the selection process by:
  1. 1.

    Listing and briefly describing key material and system factors which should be considered during adhesive selection.

     
  2. 2.

    Outlining steps in the preliminary adhesive selection process.

     
  3. 3.

    Describing basic test methods which are useful in screening the candidate adhesives, once they have been chosen.
