Adhesives — their use and function

  • W. A. Lees


Although there is, as might be expected, a grey area between structural and mechanical applications of adhesives, it helps understanding to consider them separately. Generally, structural adhesives are used in some form of overlap joint, as distinct from the co-axial joints formed from turned parts, where anaerobic adhesives (see Chapter 3 and Section 5.1.2) are normally employed. However, structural adhesives may be used in co-axial configurations when maximum performance is required.
